Old Song, New Rendition

May 30, 2021

In 2019, when Nina was on tour and simultaneously researching and learning songs for a recording project, she met a DJ, Mark Gilson from WRFG radio station in Atlanta. He had just interviewed Frank Hamilton, a folksinger, music educator, and founder of the Frank Hamilton School in Decatur, GA. At that time, he was tributing Pete Seeger on the anniversary of his birthday. Mr. Gilson recommended being in touch with Frank, and in the gracious spirit of the folk tradition, she was invited to visit the school and even to participate in a Hootenanny! In later conversation, Nina mentioned she had recorded a song called "Lowlands;" to which Frank responded, "I taught that song to Odetta in a stairwell at the Gate of Horn (Chicago)!"
