Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Elvis Costello and Mumford & Sons

After watching performances by Elvis Costello and Mumford & Sons over the past two weeks, let's take in a song that combines these artists. Above they do a fine acoustic medley of two songs that speak for the dispossessed, Bruce Springsteen's "The Ghost of Tom Joad," inspired by John Steinbeck's "The Grapes of Wrath," and Woody Guthrie's "Do Re Mi."

"Ghost" is an over-looked masterpiece in the Springsteen catalog. I'm glad to see that there are some who recognize its appeal.
