Friends of the Lair: Musicians, Artists, Composers, and Other Dangers to the Status Quo

This mix of stuff is a by-no-means-complete listing of the websites of my favorite musical artists whom I have encountered over the years, and a whole bunch more besides. My musical tastes have always been a little strange, and are getting weirder all the time. My own songs, of course, are among the weirdest ones I know. But anyway, here are some of the musicians that I have known and loved since my conversion to Folkism at the age of ten.
