What We Lost
Customers who viewed this item also viewed
The songwriting pride of Springfield, Illinois returns with a brilliantly executed set of songs. Drawing on lessons gleaned from writers like John Steinbeck and Toni Morrison, Bedford creates a vast canvas of the Midwest expressing a feeling for the land and its ghosts. What We Lost is written from the perspective of Bedford's grandfather after the death of his brother during WWII. Cahokia, sketching the deserted mound city of the Mississippian culture, evokes the ancient past; Fire in His Bones portrays Charlie Patton, one of the fathers of the Delta Blues. Produced by Chas Williams and Ben Bedford.
Ben Bedford has proven himself to be a truly inspired and talented storyteller. --Arthur Wood
