This Is What I Did Thursday Night

You have to kind of turn up the volume - this isn't quite the best quality.

I would be the one singing and playing the banjo.

I wish.

Ok, so that's who we went to see Thursday night. It was my big sis's early birthday present for me. That would be Uncle Earl - a five woman strong old timey string band.

It. Was. Awesome.

I knew Abigail Washburn (the banjo gal) was amazing but these five women together ... just incredible! AND, Rayna Gellert is one of the best fiddlers I've seen in a while. And the fact that I don't get out much any more is no refection on her talent.

So, I hope you enjoy the video and the song. This is my new brain worm, or ear worm or whatever you call those songs that get stuck in your head.

And, just in case any of you were thinking otherwise, MY sister is the best.

They're awesome! I love that kind of music - "why, the Soggy Bottom boys are steeped in Old Timey music" - O Brother, Where Art Thou

Such a nice big sister, to take you, but I'm sure you deserved it. Happy Birthday to be!!!!

Very nice. I like me some "roots music."

Seriously...those five women together were like witnessing the quinary godhead. I've always liked bluegrass, but I think I had a full conversion, baptism by fire.

I want to see them again. And again. And again.

They are playing at Grey Fox this summer
