Native Folk Rock from Sean Wright

Don't tell anyone, but one of the artists I'm playing in Part 2 of my Creative Commons Sampler is Sean Wright, who has some cool stuff that seems at least partially modelled after Bob Dylan.  I don't want to give away too much about the track I'm going to play for now, but I do want to highlight a new single he's released on Jamendo.

The single, called You're Calling Mgesso Watsowsen, is a fusion of Wright's folk stylings and Makwabid, a member of the Abenaki Nation.  Makwabid is responsible for passing on the knowledge and traditions of the Abenaki language to Seven Generations.  At least, that's what Wright sent out in a private message on Jamendo.

The song is really cool, and has real power behind it.  It's available to download free, as always.
