we were once sparrows - walking the words

we were once sparrows is the stage name of darius greene, and he makes dark, brooding folk tunes featuring intricate guitar lines and sinister lyrics. some of the guitar figures seem to have a slight metal influence, along with their minor-key folkiness.

included in this three-tune set is a take on the song tradition of the two sisters, also known as 'dreadful wind and rain', one of the creepiest murder-ballad type folk tunes ever to migrate from great britain to the hills of appalachia, and one of my favorites of the genre.
