Ruth Acuff “Peace” – Listen

Look, this is the first track feature of December and were we really supposed to ignore a song called ‘Peace‘ that features ‘Voice, Harp, Upright Bass, Cello, Viola, Violin(X2), Tambourine, Sleigh Bells‘ ?  Don’t get the wrong idea, we’re not easily swayed sentimentalists, in this game you can’t afford to be, so if Ruth Acuff hadn’t made such a dreamily beautiful track with an inspiring mantra we wouldn’t be spinning it.  It’s true, though, that Missourian Acuff was inspired not just by the looming festive season but also by the political turmoil around her, and in part wanted to pour oil on the troubled waters.  Consider that balm applied.

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?
