Roll Along With Me/ Bury Me Beneath The Willow by Tom Brosseau
“A simple riff that came about while watching a baseball documentary. Old habit, really. Practicing acoustic guitar in front of the television set. I like to visit San Diego. My good friend Gregory Page lives there, and when I do go for a visit I take the train, which parallels the Pacific Ocean. Speed, bodies in the sun, bodies in the moonlight, California towns along the way, beach, the vast sea. Not all the time but some this is how I escape from the world and when I escape that’s when things happen. Many things in life can be solved. It all starts with observing.
“‘Bury Me Beneath The Willow’ is a song I first learned about through the Rural Roots of Bluegrass songbook by Wayne Erbsen. It’s an easy songbook to learn a little something about American folk music. My version of this folksong standard was record in Burlington, Wisconsin at the Coffeehouse at Chestnut & Pine and features my good buddy, Andru Bemis. I hope you will enjoy both songs;-)”
