I Love Live Music

(Don't fall over, Kel, but it's the third blog post in a week)

So, last night was absolutely fantastic. My baby sister Caitlin took me to a concert. We saw the amazing Catie Curtis. She's a folk singer from Boston and Cait introduced me to her music earlier this year and I heart her. A lot. She reminds me a little of Dar Williams, but she's wonderful in her own right. She sang several songs that made us cry, one about her dad that reminded us of our grandpa and Red Dirt Girl - an EmmyLou Harris song that's probably the saddest freaking song I've ever heard. Cait and I sat there crying like lunatics.

It was an open air show at a camp on the shore of Lake Michigan and I took pictures of the amazing view. Sometimes I forget how incredibly beautiful this state is. Check these out - and oh yeah, some of Catie, too.

Lake Michigan is awesome. And if this woman reminds you of Dar Williams, I am there! You introduced me to Dar Williams' music a long time ago and I've been a fan ever since.

I love open air concerts. Lovely. Yep I remember Lake Michigan. Used to camp at Dune State Park in northern Indiana. Sigh.

I fail to comprehend how the two of us discretely wiping our eyes, can be construed as "crying like lunatics". Perhaps you felt like a lunatic while crying, which is understandable, but I remained the stoic emo kid I am: one lone tear sliding down my pink freckled cheek.

It was a kickass show though. We must be on the look out for more.
