I am not fond of a lot of today's pop/country hybrid music, but I still love good Bluegrass.

Perhaps it stems from my Appalachian roots, and spending time with relatives down in the West Virginia hills when I was a little girl?

Some of my favorite groups would include Allison Kraus and Union Station and the Dry Branch Fire Squad. My favorite CD would be the Dry Branch Fire Squad's Hand Hewn.

Quote:
Atlanta is burning


Two years we've been fighting though it seems like a hundred
Away to the south there's a home I onece knew
Where my loved ones are waiting for a word from the Captain
That the battle has ended for the gray and the blue



I left dear old Georgia on the first day of April
The grass in the valley was just turning green
I married my Sally just a week before leaving
We now have a baby that I've never seen



She wrote me a letter that told of our baby
He's just like his daddy is the words that it said
But thats been so long now that it seems like foever
And Lord I'm so homesick I wish I were dead



Atlanta is burning the horizon is flaming
The thunder of cannons in the distance I hear
I think of my Sally and the son that she gave me
If I could just see her and the baby so dear



A bullet has found me and the darkness is falling
The pain is unreal and my body so weak
The Captain is calling is but I cannot answer
My thoughts wonder soughts wonder southland as go to sleep

Not including the old masters and the O' Brother Where Art Thou? soundtrack about the only newer stuff I've heard recently is AK & Union Station, some Ronnie Milsap and Patty Loveless' "return to Appalacia/roots" type efforts. *****

I also have a couple of CD's by Patty Loveless. I particularly enjoy Mountain Soul. Another group I sometimes listen to is called Nickel Creek. One of my favorite songs of theirs is called In the House of Tom Bombadil. Whenever I listen to it, I can see Tom dancing about and having fun and singing with his Goldberry. ******************************************************

I love me some bluegrass! The NPR channel up in our former home of Rhinelander used to have Bluegrass every saturday morn...sometimes we would go driving justto hear it.

I went to see tha "Down from the Mountain" tour a few years back during the "Brother Where art Thou" surge... De;l McCroury did s cover of Richard Thompson's "52 Black Lightning Vincent"! Man was it great! <i></i>
