i heart steve martin. sincerely.


I’m just gonna say it. I’m not a fan of country music. But folk revival and bluegrass are in my blood.

When we were married in the North of England, The Euro managed to find a bluegrass band for the reception. Dueling banjos, Foggy Mountain Breakdown, a little bit of something from the O’Brother soundtrack. In the middle of the night. In an old Georgian Mansion. In the English countryside. Sigh.

Continuing my love affair with the Awesomeness that is Steve Martin…

The Crow: New Songs for the 5-String Banjo is an album published in 2009 by Steve Martin, featuring Dolly Parton, Vince Gill, Earl Scruggs, Tim O’Brien, Tony Trischka and Mary Black. Most of the 15 songs were written by Steve Martin. Including this one, “The Crow”.

    How could anyone not enjoy that kind of music? It’s soothing and peaceful, yet charming and energetic at the same time.

    That. Was. Awesome. Thanks Buffy!
