Weekend Playlist: Goodnight Irene

There's a tradition in my wife's family that whenever they get together for a family reunion (or pretty much any other occasion) there's an impromptu jam session. I've been fortunate to participate in more than a few of these sessions although I have to admit my wife's family is full of far better musicians than I ever hope to be. Usually the sessions will end with a rendition of Goodnight Irene.

I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Eric Clapton had included the track on his latest CD Old Sock. Even more surprising is that he's actually been performing the song for years as you can see from the video below. Enjoy!
