about

I've been playing this song for years…and so has Tim O'Brien, but in a much different vocal+fiddle style. I was so inspired by his harmonizing of fiddle with voice, the timbre of the two together, that I decided to try it for myself. This is one of those great songs, one that stands the test of time and genre. It's also one that accepts new arrangements willingly, which is why this remained a live only song for a long time—I could never settle on a form.


A couple years ago at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, I was preparing for a solo set and needed to figure out an arrangement for the looping gear. I was invited to participate in the Gondola Sessions—a video series of performances riding the gondola. On the way back down the mountain, I played this acoustically, miraculously coasting into the chair lift station on the last note—with my back to the station I was a completely surprised.

This is Singularity of a different nature, solo fiddle and voice.
