Curt Smith and Jamie Wollam Perform ‘Everybody Wants to Rule the World’ Live at Ted Yoder’s House

In August 2016 we wrote about Ted Yoder, a truly talented hammer dulcimer player, who performed a seemingly flawless version of the Tears for Fears song “Everybody Wants to Rule the World“. As a result of the incredible popularity of this performance, Tears for Fears singer Curt Smith and drummer Jamie Wollam traveled to Yoder’s Arkansas home where all three musicians performed the song together. Rickie the raccoon made an impromptu appearance as well.

A month ago I went live on FB with Everybody Wants To Rule the World. Now Curt Smith and his drummer Jamie Wollam joined me and the family at the orchard for an encore.
