The Sweptaways from YouTube -- a very original "My Darling Clementine"

Sunrise in Timmins, Ontario
     A bright spot on a wintery January day. 

Very cool. Just had to share this.

These girls are from Sweden, singing a song I would never have called a favourite. Creativity proves me wrong --


  1. You are right. This is a very unique treatment indeed. What a treat. Their costumes, the venue and the building of the harmonies including the slide into minor are so lovely.
    Thanks for sharing this one indeed.

  2. This is so great Holly! I looked up the rest of their work and was disappointed to find that it is mostly "weird" pop songs - nothing like this. It would be so awesome to hear them do more folk songs!

    1. Perhaps they are like I was -- before Pete I didn't know our kind of music existed!
