pandemic youtube #1:
“Angel from Montgomery”

In mid-2020, as the pandemic dragged on, the death of John Prine, the great American songwriter, prompted me to ask Seattle singer-songwriter Larry Murante to join my wife Tina and me in recording Prine’s classic “Angel from Montgomery” (made famous by Bonnie Raitt).

From our separate homes, we recorded vocals, harmonica (by Larry) and guitar (by me). I created the video backdrop from videos of the three of us. I added video footage and photos I’d taken around my home in Duvall, Washington (not exactly Georgia, but hey, the song is about missing Georgia, not being there).
