December 11, 1998 | JOHN ROOS, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
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.

One great perk of being Bob Dylan is that you get birthday cards that beat Hallmark all to pieces. Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Spider John Koerner, Eliza Gilkyson, Lucy Kaplansky and Martin Simpson are among the well-wishers revisiting a baker's dozen of Dylan songs familiar and obscure and mostly from the '60s, emphasizing his gifts as a narrative storyteller and poet staunchly in the folk tradition more than his role in rock as a political provocateur .

Bob Feldman, 56, a force in folk music and the president of Red House Records, died Wednesday at his home in St. Paul, Minn. The cause of death was not immediately known. In 1983, Feldman restarted Red House, Iowa, singer-songwriter Greg Brown's dormant independent label. The small business that Feldman ran out of his apartment grew to employ nine people and gross between $2 million and $3 million a year, according to the St. Paul-based label.

The musical group the Figureheads -- hip-hop artists Jeremy Bryan and Greg Marshall and musician Dave Olson -- have earned critical acclaim for their driving beat, realistic street vibe and uplifting, child-respecting lyrics. Now they've released their first DVD: "Keep It Movin: The Figureheads in Concert." Featuring songs from their CD "The Movement," they shape their signature musical affirmations around young, nonprofessional dancers onstage and off.
