Neko Case: Wayfaring Stranger

From her 2004 album “The Tigers have Spoken,” Neko Case is our Spiritual Sunday artist today. She provides her rendition of the old 18th century spiritual “Wayfaring Stranging” – one of my all time favorite folk songs.

The choir invisible found on this recording was the audience at the third IdeaCity Conference in 2004. They really sound good on this cut and when they break through that first time it is really a pleasant surprise the first time you hear it.

Neko is accompanied only by an acoustic guitar and a banjo. I love the banjo work on this version. I first learned of this talented lady through the Tenor Guitar list as she is a proponent of the four string instrument in both the acoustic and electric varieties. If you are not familiar with her work, check her out.
