My Arizona home is getting hit with waves of dust this season (video), what locals call “Haboobs” which comes from the Arabic هَبوب . I could have played Dust in the Wind but that would be too obvious.
So I remembered this neat song by Grant Maloy Smith that tells the South west dust bowl story sung over top of an old celtic guitar picking amhrán. How cool is that?
Ceol. Keep the rhythm in us!

Unrelated but: GMS posted this Craigslist excerpt on his Twitter account yesterday. I thought it was worthy of a repost here.
