Griffith & O’Connell Spot “Trouble”

Singer/songwriter Nanci Griffith and Irish songstress Maura O’Connell were in the studio this past week recording a unique new version of Griffith’s song, “Trouble In The Fields” for a new album called, A Celebration Of The American Farm. The two teamed up with The Nashville Chamber Orchestra and performed the song live at Ocean Way Studios on Music Row with O’Connell handling the lead vocal and Griffith singing harmony. “It’s been a well sung song but Maura has always done the greatest version,” says Griffith. Billed as a tribute to the American farm, the disc will also include performances from Victor Mecyssne, John Cowan, Glen Yarbrough, Jay Ungar and Molly Mason. The album is scheduled for a fall release.
