thank you so much for Three Little Birds. it's one of my favorites Bob Marley songs. It's more a prayer than a prediction. We have to settle for some little things being alright. The big things we pray for.
thank you and your family for a piece of your life.
Hello friends! Three Little Birds for Week Three.
Thank you to everyone who has supported our chosen causes in the last couple of weeks ~ Project Bread, The Boston/Cambridge Musicians Fund and The Record Company’s Musicians Fund. Proceeds from this week's song are earmarked to help support the staff of The Burren Backroom in Somerville MA and ONCE Somerville.
Please tip them here with the buy album option!
My fab daughters Gracie and Hattie lend their beautiful voices this week. I've sung Three Little Birds to them their entire lives, since they first had ears to hear it, and it was one of the earliest songs they learned to sing along to when tiny. We've performed it together in front of people a few times, most recently at the Janovitz family holiday bash at The Burren.
Every little thing is not always going to be all right, we know this. I do a lot of cursing the darkness, but for my girls, I always try to light a match.
Thanks for following our weekly series, and hoping you are all safe and holding up.
xo Tanya, Russell, Joe, Dean ~ and this week's guests, Gracie and Hattie Fisher!
ps. There are some "artifacts" and room noises buried in this one. Chair squeaks, breathing, stomach gurgles, dog sighs, a tractor, some corduroy. See if you can pick ‘em out! (There's no prize.)

Kristin's squalliest squeakiest most raucous & gut(pageant)siest album since the classic 2007 "Learning To Sing". Scrubbed acoustic guitars and scraped electric guitars with dissonant sounds, croaky vocals and some great drumming (I bet David N is on the record). American traditional as played by a grunge band, imagine Woody Guthrie founding Sugar or Hüsker Dü, and I swear there's a Led Zep guitar riff in "Fox Point". A great album. agutterfan
