Letters from a Hill Farm
That was awesome! I haven't encountered them before, so thank you for sharing!
That was fun to see, Nan, and they do, indeed, have a good sound. It was interesting to see an accordion in the second song. I'm seeing that instrument show up more often.
Love their sound! Another one to add to my must buy and listen to list!
An interesting sound.
I didn't know NPR did these. I loved it, and I liked the group very much. Thanks for sharing.
What a gorgeous picture of your house. It looks just as I always imagined a New England house should look. Hugs, Carol
Aren't they just great, Sprite?!Penny, I love the accordion. In fact, it is my favorite sound in an instrument. Karla, I just love this band!Lisa, it is interesting, and different. All those horns plus an accordion!Barbara, you can download them as podcasts. There is some amazing, wonderful music there.Thanks, Carol. It used to look even more 'New Englandy' years before we bought it with attached sheds and barns.
Cool to hear them using the accordion as a part of the rhythm section on that second song. I've noticed some of the younger indie / folkie bands have been featuring horns more often these days. Do you know The Low Anthem?
I don't but I'll look them up, Read Ramble. Thanks!
I love your new header.My cottage is grayand you gave me an idea,a blue door :)
Ernestine, there's a bit about the door color here:http://lettersfromahillfarm.blogspot.com/2008/10/houseworkfront-door.htmlAnd just this summer we did the side doors in the same turquoise and lavender colors. We love them.
I've never heard of this group, but I enjoyed listening to their little concert. Thank you, Nan!Great new header, by the way. I love the color scheme of your house!
OKAY, that was great. I loved the second song with the inclusion of the accordian to establish the beat...great...and love the fact that he is not using a microphone and a beat box (techno) to fill in dead space. Great use of brass as well. Kind of raw, which I like.Oh and that view of yours Nan is still fantastic!
Sorry - haven't listened to the band yet, just wanted to pop in and say how much I like your current header picture!
Good music and like the setting for it. I will play it for my youngest son who is in a band, he will be interested, he is guitar and vocals his wife trumpet.My front door is blue too though more of a greeny blue, love your wood, such a lovely change from all the stone around here.Carole
Les, I think they are great! We are quite fond of the doors. :<)Anglo in Quebec, you expressed exactly how I feel! Thanks, Librarian!Carole, I bet they will like Beirut! Yeah, we have a lot of wood. You rarely, rarely see a stone or brick house. Plenty of stones in the fields though. (blog entry coming up about cellar stones!)
Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
