Matraca Berg Vividly Remembers Her “Dreaming Fields”

Matraca Berg’s soft voice drifts over the piano-led melody in “The Dreaming Fields” like a dandelion in the breeze. With the help of a video that’s gorgeous and sad at the same time, she describes the long-gone farm that supported her family for generations. Dusty footage of carefree grandchildren and cotton picking old-timers will put a tear in your eye, but Berg also finds a thankful tone somehow.
