Music Video of the Week

Been awhile, but we could probably all use some chilling out.

I’m still not even sure what to call it, but for lack of a better phrase “Americana folk” is one of my favorite genres of music. I’m a nut for it, from Civil War era tunes to Pete Seeger to the bevy of great “vintage folk” artists around today.

One of the recent greats was Dave Carter, who, with Tracy Grammer, wrote and performed some tunes that would have fit just as well in 1808 as they do in 2008. Dave passed away in 2002—too soon—but he left some great music for those interested in seeking it out.

This song is about dyin’, but not dyin’ easy. It’s instrumental until about 2:45, but be damn sure to stick around for the words.

  4. Quite nice. It seems like there’s an Irishness to it, but that could partially be the type of song.
