"Sharon" is by Memphis singer/songwriter by Tony Manard. "The song is a story from the Mississippi River Flood of 1927," he says. "I wrote it after going down a Wikipedia rabbit hole triggered by reading about Jeff Buckley drowning in the Mississippi."
For the video, which he directed, Manard skillfully edited together footage from the 1927 flood and a silent film from the same era.
Manard will be playing at Otherlands this Saturday, July 18 with Stephen Chopek, Harry Koniditsiotis, and Richard James.
