Oscar Isacc - Fare Thee Well (Dink's Song)

TUESDAY BLUES

Do you like Singer/Songwriters/Alt-Country/Americana or Indie-Folk, or do you have a unhealthy affection to the sadness, if so you may have a case of the Tuesday Blues!


Oscar Isaac - Fare Thee Well (Dink's Song)
I recently watched Inside Llewyn Davis, The Coen Brothers most recent feature.  Oscar Isaac's brilliant portrayal of a aspiring folk singer on the fringes of success (which is loosely based on Dave Van Ronk) had me wanting to pick up my six-string.  Isaac performance shows that he could always move into music if his acting career doesn't work out, however that now looks unlikely as he is in the next Star Wars movie.   The soundtrack was co-produced by produced by T Bone Burnett and Marcus Mumford and although the movie version of song just features Isaac, this version features Mumford and Isaac getting all Rootsy.

If you are a fan of Men with Beards, like the gentle stroking of a six-string, or just a miserable bugger, Subscribe to our Spotify playlist and read more Tuesday Blues here!  Do you have a musical memory? Send us the Submit a Guest Spot and we'll feature it!

Tis indeed a very good film and this is a nice take on Dink's Song, which I enjoyed in spite of my aversion to all things Mumford!
