Last month, I binge-listened to the podcast "Dolly Parton's America" and was fascinated with the Tennessee folksongs that were part of Dolly's childhood. If you also loved the series and want to hear more of the "sad [bleep] songs" (as Dolly described them) that shaped her musical career, check out the almost 700 traditional Virginian folksongs and ballads from the 1930s, digitized by the University of Virginia, a CLIR Recordings at Risk awardee. You can find a different version of the "Silver Dagger" and other similar songs that Dolly might have heard growing up.
