John Hartford-Tall Buildings
Well, it’s Monday again. It might seem like a cruelty to inflict this song on you as you settle into the ‘ol computer chair for another week of desk driving, but it’s a very pretty, very sad song, and John Hartford is someone absolutely worth checking out if you haven’t already.
Fun Fact: Other than being an accomplished guitarist, banjo player, fiddler and soft shoe performer, as well as the father of modern bluegrass (“Newgrass”-easy enough), John Hartford was an actual licensed steamboat captain on the Mississippi, a job which he did a few days a week during summers for his entire life. Folk music and steamboats, the man knew how to live!
