“Ghost in This House” was recorded by American country music group Shenandoah and released in September 1990. Almost a decade later, bluegrass-country singer, songwriter and fiddler Alison Krauss was at a Michael Johnson concert in Nashville when it hit her. “He was performing a cover of “Ghost in This House” and I remember thinking, that’s the worst thing I have ever heard in my entire life…we have to do it too!” she said when performing it on Live. Krauss then covered it on her 1999 album Forget About It.
Guitarist and song writer for the indie rock band Manchester Orchestra, Andy Hull just posted an acoustic version inspired by the Krauss cover on his blog. Hull stays busy, as he is also a songwriter in his own folk-centered solo project Right Away, Great Captain, and is co-president of Manchester Orchestra’s label Favorite Gentlemen. Have a listen to Hull’s “Ghost in This House” below, courtesy of his blog.
