The Stairwell Sisters - San Francisco's all-gal old-time teardown - release a Springsteen single - Youngstown - a gorgeous rendition on fiddle, banjo, guitar, bass and Hawaiian slide. The Stairwell Sisters chose Youngstown from a list of songs to learn for a live presentation of Howard Zinn & Anthony Arnove's Voices of A Peoples' History, 2009. It is a fantastic banjo tune, and tells a story familiar to fans of Southern old-time music, and working people everywhere. The Sisters have been performing it ever since, and released it as a single at their Tenth Anniversary show at the Freight & Salvage, Berkeley, CA, Dec 12, 2010. Enjoy.
