Sarah Clanton “Silver Lining” – Listen

Sarah Clanton is that unusual thing – a Nashville based cellist/singer-songwriter. It’s a twist that gives a very different sound to her beautifully sung and thoughtful lyrics. Take Silver Lining for example – which was inspired by a nearby church burning down just after…you know …his… inauguration. One event saw the community rally round to make things better, the other started putting up barriers between people. Makes you think – seems more can be achieved if people work together. Made Sarah Clanton think too – hence this song which is a call for compassionate conversation, which Sarah co-wrote with fellow award-winning Nashville-based songcrafter Mary Bragg.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
