Last December, bluegrass outfit Railroad Earth took part in the 2015 Strings & Sol music festival at the Now Sapphire Resort in Mexico, where they performed a beautiful version of the traditional Scottish folk song "Peggy-O." Watch it above, via YouTube.
"Peggy-O" has taken many forms over the years, and different versions have taken alternate names like "Pretty Peggy-O," "The Bonnie Lass o' Fyvie," "The Maid of Fife," and "Fennario." Famous versions have been recorded by Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Simon & Garfunkel, and Zac Brown. The Railroad Earth performance sounds most like the Grateful Dead version, which was a staple in their repertoire beginning in 1973. The mostly acoustic instrumentation with flute gives a more soft and gentle touch.
