Sea Lion Woman

My Feist interest has not abated yet. I checked out her two CDs from the library. Looking into “Sea Lion Woman,” I found its entry on Wikipedia. According to it, Herbert Halpert recorded the song in 1939 in Mississippi. That information registered immediately. The blogged Great Big Yam Potatoes album of Mississippi fiddle music comes from Halpert’s 1939 trip through the state.

Halpert had a vehicle modified to haul the massive recording equipment. The Mississippi band Sound Wagon is named after it. They play traditional Mississippi fiddle music.
