Gillian Welch - Caleb Meyer

A fine blend of storytelling and music.  I love these two.

I think that in another life Gillian Welch and David Rawlings made moonshine deep in the Appalachian mountains. Or they handled snakes.  The song is from Welch's 1998 album Hell Among the Yearlings, but it seems far older then that.  Effortlessly so.  Nothing about it seems forced or fake to me. The old ghosts flow from them.  A perfect song.

As for Caleb, he kind of deserved it, no?
