Pickin' and Sewing

I told myself I wasn't going to get online at all today, but I can't help it...I think I need an intervention.

While on Fall Break this week, my plan is to make some aprons for my currently empty Etsy shop. And while I sew, I always have music playing. Sometimes Brian Setzer or Harry Connick jr., sometimes my beloved 80's music and often, Broadway musicals.

This morning I've strayed from the normal and have been listening to Old Crow Medicine Show.

I think what has really drawn me in about this band is that their voices remind me of the singing I heard as little girl at various Pentecostal and otherwise Un-Baptist revivals. I'm also reminded of the singing that would always occur at family reunions on my Mom's side of the family. And furthermore, I don't think it's possible to be from Kentucky and not at least appreciate bluegrass music. It's not something I listen to alot, but when I do, I usually always enjoy it.

Anyway, I dig these kids...have a listen!

Tear it Down


OK. Back to undistracted sewing. I will not be online again until an apron is finished!

Tear it down, baby!
Kellie, you have the BEST taste in music. I wish I could raid your music collection and upload it to my ipod.
