What a great evening! Made dinner (I have built myself a cracking outdoor kitchen- that's why the kitchen sessions are rare now- I do all the cooking). Smoked a few pork chops, did some romano beans with lemon zest on the griddle, chopped up some fresh tomatoes and basil from the garden and hit it with balsamic, and slid down a musical rabbit hole. Catherine McClellan, per Jim's comments...folks, if you have not heard her, go hear her. Her rendition of Snowbird is powerful, but she does another song, The Raven Sun...and yep, I have a request. Go learn it gang, such a great tune.
I like all music really, but it dawned on me that I rarely play spiritual/gospel tunes...and then I was vaguely reminded of a video I had seen where the hosts asks the performer if it is OK that everyone joins in, and the performer says he would not want to do the song unless everyone helped out.
Ugh! What is that video?? I racked my brain until I was surrounded by snoring dogs and sleeping spouses, but I remembered it finally.
When I tell you all to go get your ukes, I am only half being cheeky...the world is a better place when we are all playing. Anyway- here is the video that gave me fits all night...and it's a bird song!!!
SO of course after all that- here is me doing it. Go get your ukes.
Good night folks, can't wait to see what you bring me tomorrow. I will be on late...got a lot of baby birds to feed.
