Watch: Ry Cooder Joins TIME's Joe Klein on the Road
"Ry Cooder has provided much of the sound track of my life," Klein writes of his traveling companion. "He’s been writing political songs in recent years, and unlike most in that often-too-obvious genre, each is musically exquisite."
On their tour stop in Dayton, Ohio, Day 13 of Klein's trip, Cooder introduces him to local fiddler Dan Gellert before the two musicians take the stage at the Trolley Stop for a live set. Watch the video below.
