Free Bi-Weekly Music Download - Buffalo Gals by Pete Seeger

Pete Seeger - Buffalo Gals

Every two weeks, free tracks from Smithsonian Folkways Recordings and Classical Music Library are offered.
This week (the week of January 28, 2014) the Smithsonian Folkways Recording is Pete Seeger's Buffalo Gals in honor of Pete Seeger's passing at age 94 on Monday, January 27, 2014.

Pete Seeger's life, music, and legacy encapsulate nearly a century of American history and culture. He has immersed himself in folk music and used it, like Johnny Appleseed, to "plant the seeds of a better tomorrow in the homes across our land." The songs in this collection of 139 American Favorite Ballads narrate tales of ordinary people and their extraordinary deeds, and show Pete at the crossroads of the past and the future putting his own stamp on America's folk song heritage while bequeathing it to generations to come.

How do I know which gadget to buy?

Which Gadget is Right for You

It's that time of the year for my casual daydreaming about gifts for friends and family to turn to wide-eyed panic as I realize I'm quickly running out of shopping days. The time of the year when I look for the gift that says "I love you but I am able to display it in an ironically distant way," but usually end up settling for saying "I found this at the 7-11 on the off-ramp into town." 

If you've got any gadgets on your list - laptops or ereaders or tablets or anything else with a pretty screen - it can be even harder to pick out the right gift. That's why the CTC is offering the "Which Gadget is Right for You?" class, this Tuesday, December 4, at 5:30 PM on level four of the Central library. We'll be discussing the pros and cons of different ereaders, tablets, and smartphones - so come with questions!
