Previously recorded by the likes of Joan Baez, Nick Drake, Peter Paul & Mary and Cerys Matthews, 'All My Trials' makes two appearances on our tribute. That wasn't intentional but works out beautifully as the two versions convey very different moods. Anaïs Mitchell's wonderfully supple and expressive voice gives this version a plaintive yet clear-eyed sense of purpose.
