Thursday Night Songwriter Showcase: James McMurtry at Paste Studio NYC Live

Thu, Feb 22, 2018 at 6:13:43 pm


Watching this live performance by James McMurtry for Paste Magazine, I was struck by how under-rated he is as a guitarist, because it's no small feat to sing with this much passion and keep that 12-string guitar engine going like he does. Playing 12-string guitar all by itself can be exhausting (I speak from experience).

And the lyrics, man, the lyrics.

1. Down Across the Delaware 0:34
2. These Things I've Come to Know 8:10
3. Copper Canteen 11:58
