The undaunted trio gamely face missed cues, ill-fitting costumes and solving the problem of having no one to play Tiny Tim.

This is not a museum piece. The Three Davids are not recreating the sound of Hank Williams and the Drifting Cowboys, they are interpreting the music with love, vitality, respect, energy, and emotion.
