Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker opened The Last of Us: Part II’s PSX 2017 panel with a live rendition of classic American folk song The Wayfaring Stranger today. Both of the stars appeared to be performing in-character, and later discussion suggests that the performance will have relevance in the game.
Numerous artists have covered The Wayfaring Stranger over the years. This author recognises it from Eva Cassidy’s Songbird album, but it’s also been covered by Johnny Cash, Tim Buckley, and many more. Intriguing.
Update: Reposting with higher quality footage, and the rest of The Last of Us: Part II panel.
