Troubadour Tom Russell has been writing and singing folk songs about the West since the early ’70s. An occasionally strident storyteller, his recordings are populated by cowboys, drunks, movie stars, and meth addicts. Mesabi’s beauty lies in Russell’s finesse working traditional Mexican folk guitars, accordions, and horns into his lonely desert soundscape. Also featured are guest appearances by Lucinda Williams, Van Dyke Parks, and Calexico.
