James Keelaghan and history walk hand in hand like strolling lovers. Historical references abound in the Canadian folk singer-songwriter-guitarist's canon, with subject matter ranging from Canada's Riel Rebellion of 1870 ("Red River Rising") and the internment of Japanese Canadians during World War II ("Kiri's Piano"), to the 1949 Mann Gulch fire in Montana ("Cold Missouri Waters") and the last goodbyes of sailors aboard a doomed ship ("Captain Torres").

When Dar Williams, Lucy Kaplansky and Richard Shindell discussed doing an album of their favorite folk songs, they weren't talking about stuff by Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Sandy Denny or Phil Ochs. Nope, these East Coast singer-songwriters shared a vision of an entirely different sort. Their idea was to draw attention to songs by lesser-known but equally deserving folkies. That idea blossomed into the 12-song album "Cry Cry Cry," released in October on the New York-based indie-label Razor & Tie.
