An Extra Helping of the Blue Plate Special – Andrew Tufano “When Joy Kills Sorrow”

Andrew Tufano, a singer/songwriter from Nashville, recently joined us on the Blue Plate Special. For this tune, he introduced fiddler Seamus Guy, who is accompanying him on his tour. This is a Bela Fleck song “When Joy Kills Sorrow” that Andrew and Seamus put their own touches on – including adding an old time tune called “Christmas Eve” in the middle. They joked that maybe it now should be called Christmas Kills or Eve Of Sorrow. Whatever you want to call it, it’s good foot stompin’ fiddlin’ music!
