This is a video a certain someone suggested that I post awhile ago…sorry about the delay there. But it’s fantastic. Just Colin Meloy (of The Decemberists, obvi) playing The Crane Wife 1, 2, and 3. My favorite part is when he asks for suggestions and, after hearing requests for Crane Wife, asks which one and people respond, “all of them!” So he complies. Gorgeously.
