Music Monday "Hard Times Come Again No More"

This is a song written a long time ago- Way back during the civil war in fact!

It was written by a man named Stephen Foster in 1854. Since then, it's been covered by a whole lot of people. Recently, for a Haiti benefit, Mary J. Blige covered it. But the best version, in my opinion, is the one I'm going to post here today. This cover of "Hard Times Come Again No More" is performed by one of my all time favorite musicians, James Taylor, and cellist Yo Yo Ma. Oh, how I love the cello...

Anyway, like I said, it's been covered by many, for good reason- What a beautifully sympathetic song. One more person will be covering it soon... Can you guess who?
