Bluegrass Raleigh

No. 12 'Atheists Don't Have No Songs'

Bluegrass has a long tradition of a cappella singing, especially spirituals, and also onstage humor (usually between songs).

“Atheists Don’t Have No Songs” combines all of that in a dead-on affectionate homage to bluegrass gospel, as put together by Brevard’s Steep Canyon Rangers. Here is a version from “Late Show With David Letterman,” with Martin’s solo vocal at the end bringing down the house as always.
