Sweet and Sunny South

This is a nice video to a beautiful song, the thought-provoking “Sweet and Sunny South”, by New Orleans based singer-songwriter Gina Forsyth (of The Malvinas) . It’s a song that speaks to the culture of the deep south of the United States. It really has great cross over potential for folk and politics; perfect for those who enjoy what we do here at Folk Roots Radio but also take in the humorous political commentary and interviews on our sister show Beyond the Ballot Box. Thanks to uber-humour-folkie Christine Lavin for the heads-up and the video.
