University of Texas Press
Based in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee, The Victor Mourning perform acoustic anachronisms from another century that are firmly rooted in this one - sometimes raucous, sometimes quiet, mostly dark, and very southern.
Thought provoking, starkly haunting songs tell tales of grief-torn outcasts, confidences betrayed, piracy, and murder: A man who eats nothing but locusts and Campbell's soup; a traveling albino; an unexpected version of the ancient Greek myth of Icarus set in the hills of rural Arkansas.
With classic storytelling, soaring harmonies, and melodic fiddle, the band creates music with an old time feel filtered through a modern sensibility, at once both relevant and true to its ancient roots.
