I've had this post in the hopper for awhile and now's as good a time to use it as any. First, to set the mood, a short 1:12 minute video of a Norfolk and Western freight/passenger train steaming through the snow. It could be the "Last Train from Poor Valley."
Norman Blake has a song called "Last Train from Poor Valley." In this video, before performing the song, Blake explains how he came to write it. The story involves Johnny and June Cash and the making of a Christmas album.
Blake plays guitar, of course, and is accompanied by his wife Nancy, and himself on Dobro (by means of video editing and overdubbing). As you might expect, he ain't too shabby with that Reso.
