YouTube Preview ImageTodd Snider- Can’t Complain

Todd Snider performing “Can’t Complain” on February 18, 2007 at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, California. Following a series of sold out shows on the other side of the Atlantic, Todd Snider is back on the road supporting his 12th album release, Agnostic Hymns and Stoner Fables. The album is a snapshot of the haves and the have nots; love, faith, riches, and the lack there of. Dare I say folk music for the 99%? The album also features the lovely fiddle playing of the even lovelier Amanda Shires who deserves a whole post unto herself on When You Awake.

The great Earl Scruggs passed away yesterday at the age of 88 at his home in Nashville, Tennessee. The banjo-playing legend, who helped shaped modern country music (and who was incredibly progressive for his time with an openness to exploring emerging music and playing with musicians like The Byrds, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez), will be greatly missed. Check out some of our favorite videos of him after the jump.
