Rachel Redux

This is a rerecording of a song I did some time ago. Its a reworking of the traditional spiritual "Mary, Don't You Weep" into a Jewish version I call "Rachel, Don't You Weep." For this new version I've changed the song from Dm to Dmaj, since it is traditional played in a major key. This is also my first recording featuring my newly acquired banjulele.
