Monday music: “St. James Infirmary”

I know, I’ve done this song a lot, but it’s one of my favorites. I even did this combination doing this song before: Rhiannon Giddens fronting the Silk Road Ensemble doing the classic old N’awlins ditty “St. James Infirmary,” which has been sung over the last century by the likes of Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, Cisco Houstin, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Arlo Guthrie, Dave Van Ronk, and more.

But I stumbled across this live version, and it’s an absolute delight.
