As a ritualistic person, I can't break from that completely, so here are two pieces for the day. First, a 4th of July piece. Then, a non-American piece. I figure that if I'm going to do something non-American on the 4th, I should do something by a French musician, so I'll go with French-Algerian guitarist Pierre Bensusan. Besides, today's post will touch on the relationship between the American Revolution and the French Revolution, so a Frenchy seems appropriate. It would have been even more fitting if Algeria had been covered by the travel ban, but Pierre Bensusan came to mind this morning, so that's who I picked. First, though, some 4th of July music from Rising Appalachia.
