She makes time stand still

Patty Griffin’s birthday was last week and damn it, I forgot to post a video. So I herewith correct that grievous oversight. While I was looking through videos, I stumbled across thisradio interview that Maddow did with her a few years ago. Maddow says,”You get the sense that you’ve read something by the time you are done listening to one of her album” and she’s so right. That “literary quality” is no doubt one of the reasons Griffin got spot #19 inPaste Magazine’s100 Best Living Songwriters. As anyone who’s seen her live will tell you, her musical chops are every bit the match of her writing.
