Our favorite bi-coastal folkies, Goodnight, Texas, have cut a dark and somewhat despairing video for their song, “Dearest Sarah,” aka the song that moves people to tears.
“Dearest Sarah” comes from their current record, Uncle John Farquhar, and as we learned in the article linked above, was inspired by the sentiments expressed in the famous Sullivan Ballou letter from the Civil War. Shot in singer Avi Vinocur’s apartment foyer, the video stars the whole band who, for once, is all in the same place (with no angry neighbors yelling at them to keep it down).
Goodnight, Texas are an Americana outfit with one foot in the Bay Area, the other in New York. They were recently featured on NPR’s Mountain Stage and are currently touring with PigPen Theatre Co.. Later this month, Goodnight Texas will perform with locals Bhi Bhiman and The Family Crest.
