A review of "Holly Beach" by Patrick Cooper

"Holly Beach" has the classic American sorrow of a coalminer's ballad, though happens instead to be sung in the voice of a New Orleans fisherman. The song documents the last decade or so of the work in its historical context, citing Gulf Coast hurricane devastation and government involvement (or lack thereof). This is a remarkably refreshing folk song, familiar in its lyrical style (many thousands of American ballads have been written about the difficulties facing the working class), but with an unfamiliar setting and narrator. Or at least, I should say that I haven't heard any such folk music like this. The melody is spot on and Patrick Cooper's voice and guitar ring out perfectly.

I would add "Holly Beach" to a playlist called

Hard Times n Blues

"Holly Beach" is reminiscent of well-known artists such as

John Prine
