Columbus folkie lights up the darkness with this seven-minute stroll through history.

I never imagined seven minutes of a dude walking around in the dark would make for a good music video, but Columbus folkie Johnny Newman done did it here. "The Authors" finds Newman channeling the acoustic-and-harmonica sounds of yore in a manner that might remind you of The Tallest Man on Earth. Check him out May 27 at Kobo with Dolfish and You Won't; it's Memorial Day weekend, so Sunday is like an extra party night.
