"Hard Times"

Though it was first published in 1854, the plaintive resonance of "Hard Times Come Again No More" seems to find a home in every succeeding year and economic circumstance. There are myriad presentations of the song, but I ran across Kate and Anna McGarrigle (et al.) this morning and liked it.

  1. Yes, that's a great performance. Another of my faves is this Irish-y version (it's even introduced by a leprechaun!).
