Iris and her friends picking probably don’t meet anyone’s primal threshold, but in a world where a significant proportion of the population believes humans at some point interacted with dinosaurs (and it wasn’t in the cartoon world of Land Before Time), the courage of someone deviating from the culture they continue to live in shouldn’t be undervalued.
That’s not primal in the blood sense, but it is courage of a sort Gang Green, I suspect, has never imagined.
When are they serving the tea and crumpets? You have to admit, Iris DeMent sounds like a John Waters character.
