Hard Working Americans – Blackland Farmer (music video)

We’re gearing up to see a lot of good bands at Hoxeyville Music Festival next weekend. One of them is Hard Working Americans, a jamband super group with Todd Snider on vocals. Here they are doing “Blackland Farmer”, a song written by country singer Frankie Miller back in 1959. They transform it from an earnest cowboy song into a world weary, slow churning blues rock number.

They’re playing on Saturday night. Greensky Bluegrass plays after them. Should be a great night of music.
