Have you dug into the YouTube videos of Pete Seeger’s fantastic Rainbow Quest TV series from 1965 and 1966? It’s an incredible garden of wonderful performances by such important performers as Lead Belly, Woody Guthrie, Elizabeth Cotten, the New Lost City Ramblers, Doc Watson, the Stanley Brothers, Judy Collins, Mississippi John Hurt, Richard and Mimi Fariña, Johnny cash and June Carter, and this week’s featured artist, Reverend Gary Davis. On this stirring gospel number, Davis plays for an in-studio audience of Seeger (who often joined his guests playing and/or singing), and fellow guests Shawn Phillips and British troubadour Donovan. Rainbow Quest is definitely a rabbit hole worth spending a lot of time in! —Blair Jackson
