Every time I hear this great piece, I think of the epic movie "The Deer Hunter." Great call WIR!
This woman blows my mind playing that guitar. It's Bud time here in N.C.
She crazy wicked with the guitar!
She is a good guitarist but I wish she'd get some white people as her backing band.
Here's some songs by Tex Williams about women from the late 1940s. Plus his hit Smoke Smoke That Cigarette.

Oct 09, 2011 · Pretty Polly is a traditional English-language folk song found in the British Isles, Canada, and the Appalachian region of North America, among other places....
I'm sure this is on here somewhere but it doesn't hurt to hear it again. I really like Patty holding that note and the look on Ralph Stanley's face.
Roxy music with Both Ends Burning. Check out the girls in this video.
Paul Overstreet with a timely song.
This is just for us old farts.
Well, seeing how Caste Football is ending here's some appropriate songs.
Mary Hopkin with Goodbye
Semisonic with Closing Time.
The Kinks with Days.
It's Chris Stapleton. That is good enough for me.
Just happened to come across this beautiful song on the radio today for the first time in a long time. What a lovely singing voice:
Yes, this is a great song, McKennitt is a great singer and this is a great performance. I just posted the studio version of this song on another site the other day.
McKennitt writes songs based on Celtic and British history and mythology. One gets the image of kings and castles and knights riding through the foggy moors. If you look at the video Don posted you will see some odd looking instruments. These are instruments that were used in the middle ages in the British Isles.
Here's a studio version of The Mummer's Dance.
I like the traditional instruments in the composition.
I'm mostly of of Celtic-Germanic descent and really appreciate this music. I like a wide variety of music and sometimes post some off the wall videos, but this is the music that really speaks to me.
The music video thread is one of the things I'll miss about Caste Football.
Thanks for the background, that song in particular is darn near perfect. . .
I may have posted this video before - The Kinks - Living on a Thin Line - Feel it's an appropriate video to post with the site going dark soon. Great song and lyrics that are totally applicable to what is going on across the West today. Ironically I discovered this song via The Sopranos.
Another thing that's really neat about that live performance and others by Loreena I've noticed on YouTube is the venue. Don't know what it is but it's perfect for the music.
Just checking now on Wikipedia, she's surprisingly Canadian, born in Manitoba with Irish and Scottish descent. I figured her to be Irish or Scotch-Irish born and bred. Her voice is angelic.
I've been delving into the artistic history of white people and discovered another white artist - blues singer Marion Harris. The blues came from the British Isles, blacks did not invent it. An early blues song is Greensleeves. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greensleeves
Here's Harris with Look for the Silver Lining, 1921.

This is for the Viet Nam vets. I have much respect for all veterans. My father was in WW2, my oldest brother in Nam in 66 & 67, my middle brother in 68 & 69 and I was there in 71 & 72. We all ask this question, what is going on?
This may have already been posted. Bobby Hamilton’s effortless voice is amazing.
