My friends, Jessica and Robert, sent me the lastest CD by Mike and Ruthy as a get well gift. They even got it signed.
I cannot imagine a better way of recuperating than listening to Mike and Ruthy’s great mix of music. There are songs and instrumental numbers. Some of the songs are great political commentaries, and the instrumental numbers include fast folk dance tunes, including a great mandolin solo by Jay Ungar on Dust Bowl Blues. It was this mix that caused me to fall in love with The Mammals in the first place. If nothing else, I am inspired to start playing my mandolin again.
My Mum even approved, which is high praise indeed as both my parents are committed classical music listeners. They scorn other kinds of music, but Mum commented on this CD without me saying who it was. She even asked who was playing the fiddle and said she could see why I liked them.
Hopefully, I’ll get to see them in concert before the year is out.
