2019 continued my love affair with Parsonsfield and The Meadows Brothers. But it also included an introduction to Ruston Kelly by an awesome friend in DC and my first live concert with The Tallest Man on Earth. Another artist, Old Sea Brigade, stole a piece of my heart, too; I finally made it to a live show in Pittsburgh. And the music of a new, virtual friend, Ryan Barnaby, caught my attention. His totally fun and catchy Christmas music video provided a sugary topping to the always spirited, annual Parsonsfield holiday house concert. Enjoy!
Music is the language of the spirit. It opens the secret of life bringing peace, abolishing strife.
Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.
Confucius: The Book of Rites
Life seems to go on without effort when I am filled with music.
