Wanda Fischer’s Favorites of 2017

Feb 2, 2018


“The Hudson River Sampler’s” Top Twenty-Five of Last Year


Note: These are listed in alphabetical order, and not in order of preference. These are a few of the CDs that Wanda particularly liked in 2017. There were so many, but she had to cull down the list to these. Every week, WAMC receives between five and 15 new folk music CDs, so you can get an idea of the volume of new music that comes in annually!
