Given that I am partial to the allure of somewhat dark country music, I am most surprised that I have not given the music of Ms. Welch a thorough looking at. Or hearing at. Then again, perhaps I shouldn’t be surprised: I am not a good music writer!

Anyway, here is a track off her recent album, The Harrow and the Harvest. It’s pretty sparse in its instrumentation and composition, but boy, it is a magnificently toe-tapping good time. Those harmonies get me every darn time!
