I’ve heard quite a few good new songs this year…not all “new” in the sense of being just-released, but at least new to me. Some of them…
Reflections from the beyond of an Irish immigrant who fought in both the American Civil War and at Little Big Horn: Mick Ryan’s Lament, sung here by John Sheahan, Jane, & Shane.
Laura Orshaw: Guitar Man
I heard this sequence of songs on the radio while driving home one foggy night:
John Prine, Clay Pigeons
Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams, Midnight Highway
Jason Isbell, Hudson Commodore
Nanci Griffith, Waiting on a Dark Eyed Girl (can’t find Nanci’s version online, the link goes to one by Kevin Welch)
