Vic Chesnutt on All Songs Considered

Posted By on Mon, Dec 28, 2009 at 9:57 AM

Coverage of Vic Chesnutt's death has been plentiful these past four days, and you can find a good portion of it here. If you weren't already familiar with Chesnutt before this weekend, spend some time with this video, recorded in 2007 when he performed on NPR's All Songs Considered. You'll learn a lot about him over the course of 26 minutes: about his sense of humor, about his deep sadness, about his booming, underrated voice, about his natural ability to entertain, and about how seriously he took songwriting, and about the great effect he had on the people around him.
