My family and I first found Rising Appalachia during our first First Friday Art Walk and I was hooked. The energy and vision of their music is invigorating, but it’s their soul and their joy that really makes it beautiful. I found this and had to share.
I’m also a sucker for trains (and am long overdue for a train ride) and jam sessions.
PS – I also took this video while we were there. I had a longer one on my GoPro, but it seems to have eaten it. If I can recover it I’ll post it.
I found this on Swiss Miss this morning via Kickstarter and I actually cried. I think this is one of the most wonderful projects that I have seen in a long time. The sheer beauty and simplicity of it is overwhelming.
The song is Bach’s Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring. You can hear Celtic Woman performing it live here.
I have had the pleasure of working with Tom Jordan of Meantooth Grin for some time now and am thrilled to introduce you to the band. Deservedly, Meantooth Grin won the People’s Choice WAMI last year for Best Blues Band of 2010. Their music has a depth and soul to it that I really enjoy so I encourage you to check them out. You can Like them on Facebook and check out their new song Insomnia on ReverbNation. It will play automatically when it loads so make sure you turn your volume up!
We surf around on YouTube a lot and have come across some pretty incredible things, one of which is ConcreteBeat.
Backstory. Years ago, early 90’s, I got to live close enough to NYC to be able to drive up for the weekends and hang out. It is a whole ‘nother world there. You see and hear stories about New York all the time, major motion pictures, the news. Being there, though, is an incredible experience and one that you’re not likely to forget.
