How did I miss this one?
I came across it at the public library: Songcatcher
is a soundtrack album for a movie
I'd never even heard of (it came out in 2000). The songs are mostly a bunch of traditional folk songs, performed by a who's who of female country/folk artists: Roseanna Cash, Iris Dement, Dolly Parton, Emmy Rossum, Emmylous Harris, Allison Moorer, Patty Loveless, Julie Miller, Maria McKee, Sara Evans, Gillian Welch, Deana Carter, Hazel Dickens, & Pat Carroll. Good stuff--worth a listen if you manage to come across it.
