Ms. Shires normally plays the littler of the two.
Yes. The google is good for educating oneself, which would have been a good thing before I posted this, yes? In my travels I found a video of Shires and Isbell covering My Mutineer though where her instrument looked to be a viola (quite low notes on the bottom string, I thought) and so I wasn't sure. It's nice, though, isn't it? I think it matches the lyrics beautifully.
Oh boy.Just watched 'The Mutineer'...You might be right!There's is a pretty amazing story. She pretty much saved him from destroying himself and out if it all came the greatest album of his life so far.Which is saying a helluva lot given what already came before..
I'm glad she saved him. It would be awful in every possible way to lose this guy.
