Song: "Rise Up Shepherd, and Follow"
Album: Christmas in Concord
Description: Expanding 2011's fine 5-song EP with a couple songs, including this duet with playwright Suzan-Lori Parks, Zanes moves into "mini-album" territory. He also gives us this retro-filter-filled lo-fi video featuring Zanes and Parks (on washboard). It's a DZ video, so that's reason enough to watch, but if you need another reason, pay attention to see the only hat crazy enough to steal the attention away from Zanes' famously unruly hairdo.
