HIGHLIGHTS:

"Folk is angry music. Make no mistake about it. But it’s playful angry. Creative angry. That’s the most dangerous kind of angry."

"I think I rage because I love and I sing because I don't sound good screaming. I play acoustic because I like it and its portable, and it's hard to hitchhike with an amp."

"The burden of proof needs to be upon those who advocate coercion and authority. If they can't meet that burden, then their structures should be dismantled. You can dismantle them many ways, but the best way to start is by laughing at them."
