Trampled by Turtles teamed up with singer-songwriter Elizabeth Cook to cover “Old Shoes (& Picture Postcards)” by Tom Waits during their concert in Grand Rapids, Michigan on March 26. The Duluth, Minnesota-based string band unveiled pro-shot video on YouTube featuring their “Old Shoes” collaboration at GLC Live at 20 Monroe.

Elizabeth Cook shared lead vocal duties on “Old Shoes” with Trampled by Turtles guitarist Dave Simonett. The cover came in the middle of TbT’s set in Grand Rapids and followed a performance of the song the previous evening in Louisville. Cook opened the concert on March 26 to end a four-show jaunt supporting the band.

Tom Waits wrote “Old Shoes (& Picture Postcards)” for inclusion on his debut studio album, 1973’s Closing Time. Waits never performed the song live as per Setlist.FM stats.
