This page is all about music.
Music is my life. Playing it, listening to it, going to concerts… I go to a lot of concerts. I mean a LOT. One of the earliest concerts I attended was of Pete Seeger. I was two or three. Everyone kept commenting to my mom about how well I moved to the music. I love dance too, I’ve studied and tried every kind known, but that’s another story. Back to the music! Basically, I just like the following:
Swing, Jazz, Bluegrass, Americana, Folk, Alternative, Punk, Traditional, Blues, Scottish, Irish, Classical……….
You know, the basics.
I have to give thanks to my mom and dad for taking me to so many concerts when I was but a wee lass. I have nothing but good memories. Well, except for this one classical concert they took me to at Bard College when I was about six, and the pianist played sixteen variations on a theme, I was in the front row, and had a runny nose but no tissues…… Yeah…
I decided to create a blog to write about the shows I go see, and to share with you some of the musicians I love, some of the venues I love, some of the cd’s/records/cassette’s I love, etc. (Yes, cassete’s still exist, and yes, I can be somewhat “old school” at times, if you will). I hope that you find my “reviews” interesting, and insightful, and that you go out and see some of the bands I mention!
P.S. I realize that my nod to cassette tapes might mislead some people about my age. Believe it or not, I WAS born after cd’s were invented, thank you very much…. I just happen to drive a, uh, old car that doesn’t have a cd player, okay?? I also have a bunch of vinyl, but let’s not even get into that……
