We couldn’t think of a better post-break-up song than “Crying My Blues Away,” a jaunty, ragtime country blues number by The Crow Quill Night Owls. Inspired by the jug and string band music of the 1920s and ‘30s, this Washington-based band has never made heartache sound sweeter. Here they are performing the ditty at last year’s Pickathon.
