Sofia Talvik “Meanwhile In Winnsboro” – Listen

There will be, at some time in the future, a genre redefinition which gathers as a new sub-genre all the songs inspired by isolation, social distancing, working from home and fear of a highly contagious and deadly virus.  ‘Meanwhile in Winnsboro’ is Sofia Talvik’s contribution.

As she says “I wrote this song without prejudice or judgement. It is merely a reflection of the situation I have found myself in, being on tour in a different country, far away from my family, watching news about people ­hoarding toilet paper and food like there is no tomorrow. A small testament to the times.”   It was written in her own lockdown, deep in the heart of Texas.

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?
