Banana Family Request

Earlier  today, Hannabanana posted on FB about The Decemberists and their intelligent songs.  One of them is the song "Shankill Butchers" which recalls the criminal-terrorist gang in Ireland in the 1970s.

Shankill Butchers

Sarah Jarosz

I know, nice topic, right?  Anyway, I mentioned that young bluegrass singer-songwriter Sarah Jarosz had done a cover of it on her debut album "Song Up In Her Head" (which is really quite good) — and told her I would post it.  So here it is.

I think this version transforms the song into almost a "Legend of Sleepy Hollow" early 19th century type-sound.  Probably my favorite on the CD.  Not bad for a girl barely old enough to see an R-rated movie.
