Gillian Welch: Summer Evening
Have we really fallen into an all-covers subtheme this week? Then far be it for the resident coverfolk blogger to miss his opportunity to share this delightfully languid take on Greg Brown's gentle love song to the season as performed by one of my absolute favorite folksingers, who I recently featured over at Cover Lay Down.
Summer Evening comes from one of my favorite tribute albums, the all-female voiced Going Driftless. Brown's rural, deeply confessional songsmithing never sounded sweeter.
