Friday Three Names - William Elliott Whitmore

We are back to Country this week , or is it blues or perhaps even folk?

I saw Iowan William Elliott Whitmore support Ray Wylie Hubbard at Glasgow's ABC2 a number of years ago - so six names for the price of two
I was introduced to him by a couple of lads from my local  who put three of his albums my way.
These are taken from the middle one of these in date order 2005's Ashes to Dust.
He puts me in mind a wee bit of Ramsay Midwood and his songs have a gothic feel with a pre-occupation of death that The Handsome Family would be proud of.

  1. Like 'em. He doesn't look old enough to have a voice like that.
