Among Peghead Nation mandolin instructor Mike Compton‘s many projects is a duo with songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Joe Newberry. The two released a live album in 2012 that highlights their stripped-down approach to old-time tunes, traditional and gospel songs, and originals, all evoking the brother duet music of the 1930s and ’40s.

In the past few weeks, Compton and Newberry were on the West Coast, recording a project at the Old-Time Tiki Parlour in Los Angeles and playing a series of concerts. This video is from their performance at the Masonic Lodge in Mountain View, California, organized by the Redwood Bluegrass Associates and attended by a few hundred appreciative fans.

“I Know Whose Tears” is a an original song written by Joe and sent out as a tribute to his late mother. It serves as a fine example of why Joe is well-known for his heartfelt songs, several of which have been recorded by folk and bluegrass notables. And it is a reminder that a deep song delivered simply and honestly is among the most powerful musical moments you’ll experience.
