The Roots and the Crops

I don't get out enough.

With various and sundry life commitments, it seems like the only times I can justify going out to experience live music is when Ron and I are playing it. I don't get to be part of the audience as much as I used to, or would like to. I heard two bands at the Tucson Folk Festival this weekend -- the excellent Bright and Childers, and a bluegrass group whose name I've forgotten. I missed a whole bunch of other people I'd hoped to catch.

But while I was there, I finally snagged Leila Lopez's latest album, The Roots and the Crops. Good stuff. If it takes a while before I'm able to hear her play live again, this is the next best thing.
