Last month in Folk it! you could listen to 11 musicographies. The histories of famous and less famous characters, told and set to folk music. Today we continue with this, but then focussing on ‘musicians about musicians’. Tales of colleagues about life, aspirations, disappointments and sometimes tragic events out of the life of co-musicians. From some people you never hear anything, others have more than one song written about them. For now we have selected 13 people, but no ten a penny. Moving, personal, sometimes a critical comment but most of all honest. We call you man and horse, or subject and executor. And who knows, maybe this topic will be continued because of the enormous amount of information.
Of course you can make suggestions, inform us and tip us off about more musical biographies and musicians about musicians… We look forward to your contributions at email@example.com
