This recording of Will The Circle Be Unbroken by Gillian Welch, Dave Rawlings, and Punch Brothers is from a concert that featured in a concert inspired by the Coen Brothers’ film, ‘Inside Llewyn Davis‘.
Inside Llewyn Davis was a movie about disappointment. Not necessarily a disappointing movie, but intentionally bleak.
De-romanticising a romanticised setting in a way that perhaps romanticises it all the more.

Which is to say the wistful joy of Will The Circle Be Unbroken is something that speaks of a hope at odds with the movie that inspired this performance.
