Busk Break: Tomb Nelson and the Stillwater Hobos perform “The Hills of Connemara”

In yesterday’s post, I mentioned just how excited some folks here at Xpress were about this group of five strapping young men who sing Irish folks songs and cause random passersby to swoon. And, not unexpectedly, the video from that post had already gathered well over a hundred views between being uploaded Monday evening and being showcased on MountainX.com Tuesday afternoon. So, just to quench that burning desire for more lads in suspenders belting out classics from the 1800s, here’s Tomb Nelson and the Stillwater Hobos performing that classic tune about Irish moonshine, “The Hills of Connemara,” near the Iron sculpture in downtown Asheville.
