Ive been up to my elbows in cleaning for Passover. The first seder is tonight so firstly a Happy Passover to all who may partake.
Now can't leave without a little music for the weekend. I think Gillian Welch would be fine company. Gillian is a singer songwriter originally from NYC, raised in LA and settled in Nashville. Her music is alternately described as haunting and soothing. I find a little of both in there.
She records mostly with her musical partner, David Rawlings, whom she met back in 1992. She only has four albums out, but her songs have been recorded by a pretty pedigreed crowd of musicians, such as Joan Baez, Jimmy Buffet and Trisha Yearwood to name but a few. I happen to love her "Look at Miss Ohio" song which you can see her performing on her MySpace. Below is a video of her and David Rawlings singing "Time the Revelator;" very spare, very lovely.

Well, time to run. Have a wonderful Passover and weekend. Thanks for dropping by.
