Here’s Matt Kinman, performing the Merle Travis masterpiece, Dark as a Dungeon.
There are a few coal mining tunes around. Let’s listen to The Mountain by Steve Earle, performed here by Mr. Earle withLevon Helm and his band.
And to cap off this little coal mining post, here’s an image of a coal mining painting by Coal Miner Jack Savitsky. This painting is in our collection.
Mr. Savitsky was a coal miner from Lansford Pennsylvania. After giving up mining, he started painting. Savitsky made quite a lot of paintings and drawings, and enjoyed success from the sale of his paintings in his lifetime.
