What a great playlist! Was this a second concert or the list from the previously mentioned one?

Jim said...

Geeze-

So many great songs by many of my favorite artists, Greg Brown, Iris DeMent, Gillian Welch, Townes Van Zandt, Kate Wolf and Nanci Griffith!!

I wish I would've been there Deb and I bet you & Fred recieved a warm welcome.

I didn't know you played the bouzouki!

Did you have fun?

It sounds like an awesome down home evening to me.

Deb said...

dan- this is the list from the concert I mentioned earlier (I think the post was "I've Got A Gig"). By the way, weren't you going to organize a pilgrimage up this way to see it? ;) Just kidding. Of course, there is the chance that this could be a semi-regular thing, and they do have lodging available right there!

jim- Did I have fun? You bet! The only way it could have been more fun would be if I had an audience full of people like you & the other bloggers I like.

Glad you liked the choice of songs. Any requests for next time?

deb, what a setlist! they sure got a bargain. katie and i considered crashing the show :) but this weekend didn't work. definitely let us know if you're going to do another one, that would be a really fun trip out of town. congratulations!

Deb said...

Anyone considering crashing, beware, the place is extremely hard to find. I was lucky, I had to run a load of fish (muskies) up to the St. Louis River in Duluth earlier that day and on the way back I decided to take the back roads and find out how to get there! Google the Hanging Horn Village if you want details... :)

You're taking requests?!

How about a concert closer to Kentucky?

Jim said...

Deb-

Requests for the nexr performance;

Canned Goods by Greg Brown
(from the 'One More Goodnight Kiss' CD - Maybe Fred could work out a mandolin part to replace the piano)

In Spite Of Ourselves
or
We're Not The Jet Set
or both
by John Prine & Iris DeMent
(from the John Prine 'In Spite Of Ourselves' CD)

Harvest Moon by Neil Young
(from the 'Harvest Moon' CD)

Those are my requests, and I could go on & on, but you have other fans to please too!;~)

Deb said...

Jim, feel free to go on and on, those are great ideas! It made me think of a couple other songs Neil has done, "Four Strong Winds" and "Helpless".

"Canned Goods"--I can certainly relate to Grandma these days! I love Greg's live version of this song where in the middle he goes into about a ten minute monologue about going down to Grandma's house, having to run the gauntlet of buxom Iowa aunts hugging him, playing with his cousins, etc.

Jim said...

OK, here's a couple more from a group we discovered last year at The Strawberry Music Festival outside of Yosemite.

Little Bird Of Heaven

or

Higher Rock

by The Reeltime Travelers (from their 'Livin' Reeltime, Thinkin' Old-Time' CD, great stuff!)

My Darlin' Hometown by John Prine
(from the recent 'Fair & Square' CD)
