Callahan is a stark, bitter acoustic troubadour. His long and winding songs charm thanks to his deep, flat, wry spoken-word singing and the strangely courteous tone with which he gets lost in thought and solves obscure puzzles in song. His new Shepherd in a Sheepskin Vest is a contented but still quite pensive ode to domesticity and family life. With Bill McKay.
