Christmas Eve with Vic Chesnutt

Christmas is all about the gathering of loved ones in our home; about sharing and reveling in the joy we bring each other. One thing that has brought me great joy for much of my adult life is the music of Vic Chesnutt. Sadly, Vic took his life on Christmas day 2009, and since that time I have made it a tradition to share Vic’s music here on Christmas eve. This year, I have chosen the track Granny from his last studio album, At The Cut. This is a live version from his final Canadian tour, and it captures all the things I love about Vic… his openness, his wit and his ocean-sized heart.

Thank you Vic… and thank you to everyone who has been a part of this increasingly extended blog family. 2012 has been a year of wonder and growth and 2013 has already got excitement written all over it.

Travel safe…

  5. I was on stage on December 24, 2009, covering “Flirted With You All My Life” for the first time. I had just discovered Vic Chesnutt a month ago.
    It left a strange taste the day after..

      I know what you mean Fran… I had seen Vic on his Australian tour just a few months earlier. Was heartbroken when I heard the news…
