Northern Weather & Sounds at Blue Rock

By Ellen Stanley

Yesterday Eric and I picked up Ruth Moody and her guitarist Lloyd Peterson, packed up all our instruments and traveled in caravan with The Pines to the Texas Hill Country to go to Blue Rock Studio for their annual party. Unusually chilly and windy, we northerners felt at home. Ruth Moody's set full of winter-inspired songs resonated with everyone...
- The Garden
- Cold Outside
- Asleep at Last (coming on the next Wailin' Jennys album coming out in the fall)
- Within Without You
- Never Said Goodbye

Other musical highlights from the northern climes included Canadian Lynn Miles and The Pines with special guest Radoslav Lorkavic...

Eliza Gilkyson also makes a surprise guest appearance

It was a great day of music with lots of wonderful people and tasty tamales. Before we left, Ruth Moody and I explored the studio space, and she tested out the beautiful piano...
