We are all motherless children

The incomparable folk singer Odetta passed away this week. News reports say she was slated to sing at Obama's inauguration. Here are a few YouTube videos:

Odetta - Cotton Fields (A great version of the old Leadbelly tune.)

Odetta Playing the Guitar

Odetta - Water Boy

Odetta and Dr. John - Brother Can You Spare a Dime? (One of my all-time favorites.)
