Art-For-Art’s-Sake Theatre: Sufjan Stevens “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing”

Time once again for our usual midday Wednesday feature.

Sufjan Stevens is an American singer-songwriter from Detroit, Michigan. Known largely for combining electronica with roots rock -- it's not a new concept, especially lately -- here he takes to the banjo, playing in the clawhammer style native to the Southern mountains, while giving new life to an old hymn, one penned by the 18th century pastor and hymnist Robert Robinson in 1757.
