It’s hard enough to write and record all of these songs, but then folks expect you to sing them live and remember the words? Bono and Springsteen have fancy gadgets that scroll lyrics to them. Folk singers just ask people to come up on stage and hold the lyric sheet. Luckily my friend, Jeanne Hoffman from the Rust Kings was nice enough to help me through the song. Photo by Geoff Firebaugh.
