Friday fanfare: "St. James Infirmary"

Originally posted to Keith's Word Press blog.

One of my favorite songs is a traditional New Orleans folk song, "St. James Infirmary" (sometimes called "St. James Infirmary Blues"). I currently have 28 different versions of the song on my iTunes, and I stumbled across this one that will likely be the 29th: from Jools Holland's Hootenany, held over the 2015/2016 new year, Rhiannon Giddens and Tom Jones duetting on the song. Magnificent!
