Close your eyes, I'll be here for a while

Today marks the eleventh anniversary of the death of singer-songwriter Townes van Zandt. I had the very good fortune earlier last year to be introduced to his music by a good friend of ours, to whom I will remain eternally grateful for that fact.

There are unfortunately not all that many concert performances of his online, but this is a nice version of one of his better known songs, 'Pancho and Lefty'.

Steve Earle wrote a tribute to van Zandt after his death, 'Fort Worth Blues'. Which is lovely.
