People's Picks: Growing Up - Musical Memories of a California Childhood

Diving into the Smithsonian Folkways collection, I created a playlist of National Heritage Fellows that reminded me of growing up.

My ten picks range from bluegrass classics to conjunto to Cajun, each chosen for the memories they evoke.
