How about some fine old time music to point us all towards the weekend.
Here’s Bruce Molsky and his Mountain Drifters doing a bang up job on an old chestnut, Across The Plains of Illinois. Bruce credits finding this version in the playing of Garry Harrison and the New Mules. Garry was a popular Illinois fiddler who died in 2012.
In the New Mules recording there was a female lead, which Bruce takes here accompanied by Stash Wyslouch on guitar and Allison de Groot on banjo. The video was shot at The Jalopy Theatre in Brooklyn, December 13, 2015.
