The blog “Where Dead Voices Gather: The Anthology of American Folk Music” from Alexander Stern has published an appreciation of the song “I woke up one morning in May” recorded by Didier Hébert (a-bear) on vocals and guitar and Dewey Segura, accordion player.  Stern gives a French and an English transcription of the song put together by several people, not drawn from the Anthology set.  Stern compares “I woke up” to other songs, with similar themes.  He’s also got a podcast, so eventually this posting should be part of an episode.   Well written and recommended.
