"Country Blues"

I let a guy at work listen to my mp3 player tonight. "Eclectic" was the review I got a couple of hours later. I think that's Latin for 'I don't know what the hell to make of that.' I wonder if he heard this one...

Country Blues - The Chieftains

The Chieftains, the Irish folk band, traveled to Nashville and recorded Down the Old Plank Road. The point was to show how Irish music transformed into bluegrass and country music in the hills of Appalachia. "Country Blues" was originally recorded by Doc Watson. Here, the Chieftains play, and Buddy and Julie Miller sing.

Update: I just realized that the whole song won't play unless you're logged onto Imeem.com. If you're not a member and don't want to sign up, here's a BugMeNot logon:

I'm part of the Eclectic crowd too. And, proud of it!

I love the Chieftains too. I saw them quite a while back at the Hollywood Bowl. It was a fantastic show.
