Nanci’s Sadness is Our Sadness

September 21, 2013

“Hopeless” was how Townes Van Zandt described his music. This is a good version of TZV’s song, Tecumseh Valley, by Austin girl Nanci Caroline Griffith. It doesn’t quite jerk as many tears out of my eyes as some of her other versions but it is sweet nonetheless. Very sweet – she transfers her emotions to the audience/viewer exceptionally well.

Taken from a Norwegian country festival known as Down on the Farm – Gribsroed Farm, near Halden, Norway – this was recorded in 1993. Sniff.

Sunshine plays beside her: as usual NCG is amongst some great musicians and singers including long time sidekick James Hooker (piano).
