Show Notes:
This week's show featured Gypsy music from all over (along with a few new releases at the end of the show). To learn more about Gypsy music and culture, check out the Gypsy Spirit page, the great Patrin site on Roma culture and history, or this Rootsworld page on Gypsy music. The influence of Gypsies on popular entertainment and culture has been dramatic, and under-appreciated. Strong listener response to this show confirmed that there's a hunger for it, so dig in.

# Our cover song of the week was, appropriately enough, a Dylan cover by a Gypsy band.
