Song masterpiece of the day: Our town, Iris Dement

Iris Dement is a true treasure. She writes beautiful songs, has a unique and extremely evocative voice and is a great duet partner as exemplified by her work with John Prine, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Emmylou Harris, etc…

This song, Our Town, is plaintive and sad, yet tells a story through the eyes of a person struck wit loss and an overall belief that all good things come to an end.

In this video, we are also treated to the fine dobro playing of Jerry Douglas, maybe the best exponent of that instrument of all times.

Enjoy.
