Damien Jurado Mini-doc at BYUtv
A fantastic mini-documentary came across my desk today. In it, you’ll find one of our favorite artists Damien Jurado talking about his music and his city, Seattle — including details about when, where, and how the songs “Nothing is the News” and “Yuma, Arizona” were written. The 25-minute doc is situated squarely in the space that Prairie Hymnal is committed to: one that explores roots in terms of place and shared cultural experience.
You can find the video by visiting BYUtv’s Audio-Files page which also features similar short-form documentaries on Low and Trampled By Turtles among others.
