Matthew Edwards Michael Hurley-a genius or just wierd? (27) RE: Michael Hurley-a genius or just wierd? 07 May 13


I'll go along with Leeneia here; Michael Hurley is a genius, and he is pretty weird too, but in a world as mad as ours Hurley is outstandingly sane! As I listened to him in the little village hall in Farndale while the soft evening light faded in the valley outside, his songs transported me to that strange and familiar world of the Harry Smith Anthology of American Folk Music. His voice went up and down the register as he toyed with the lyrics exploring all sorts of insights into the weirdness of everyday life. It was a very lovely joyful experience.
