Today’s song is a pleasantly charming, yet generally unwind-friendly, number from Andrew Bird named “Railroad Bill”. This song is a cover, as this song is considered a staple within the folk/bluegrass communities. This track is found on Andrew Bird’s wonderful new record Hands of Glory (click here to read a great review of the album). Listen for the riveting interaction between Andrew’s violin playing, the acoustic guitar and the simple-but-great percussion – it sounds like they were having a blast while recording this one!
Perfect for your Sunday Funday, there is real energy inherent in this song, but it’s of a subdued and controlled manner. Enjoy!
