Charlie just finished mastering the 41st disc of a quarterly compilation for the magazine, Sing Out!. That comes out to 4 CDs a year for the past 10 years! Every issue, Sing Out! includes a sampler of approximately 10-15 songs as a special gift to its print subscribers. The first issue mastered by Charlie is Winter 2003 which included tracks from Reggie and Kim Harris and Jean Ritchie, among others. The most recently released CD includes songs by Special Consensus, Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer and Loudon Wainwright III.
Now in its 63rd year, Sing Out!‘s mission is to preserve and support the cultural diversity and heritage of all traditional and contemporary folk musics, and to encourage making folk music a part of our everyday lives. They are a non-profit organization, and, in a time where music publications are folding, Sing Out! continues to publish and support the folk music world.
