Bunches of Fun

Tonight I went to a totally amazing concert by the Carolina Chocolate Drops. I don't know if I've ever been to a performance with more energy and enthusiasm. The whole crowd were on their feet more than once. They specialize in Old Time music, especially early African American string band music, but they play many other types as well. Rhiannon sang a Celtic thing (I wish I could remember what she called the style), that was like singing Gaelic for ten minutes without breathing and no discernible repeats of stanzas. Awesome. And she lives here in Greensboro. You may think you've never heard of them, but they are on the Hunger Games soundtrack, so there.

 In the morning we leave on a sightseeing trip that will meander a bit and end in Toccoa on Thursday afternoon for TatDays. I can't wait. That will be so. much. fun.


  1. sounds like a fun evening.
    have a safe trip meandering and a fun time at Tat Days

  2. I'm trying to read the Hunger Games now. I won't let myself watch the movie until I finish the book. Since I've been so busy coupled with the fact that I read slow. It may be awhile before I get to see the movie. lol
    So excited to see you at Tat Days. I won't be there until Friday, and I have to leave early Saturday evening... but I am excited for that small time frame that I do plan on being there!

  3. Well, OK, they're one of about a dozen different performers on Hunger Games. I was surprised to hear about it and excited about a local group doing something big.
