"Needle in the Straw" at the Rye Room

In part, it was the sense of “home and heart” that drew McDade to the genre. Perhaps because home wasn’t always constant, but there was always plenty of heart to go around. Mcdade adds, “[Folk music is the] music of the people. A really beautiful folk song’s biggest hope is to be able to connect people in the softest and strongest ways. A folk song is everyone’s.”
