This week share a favourite song or piece of music that is connected to a favourite genre of yours, or just share a favourite piece of music or song with us.
It is really difficult to choose a favorite music genre. I guess it would depend on my mood. If it’s for dancing at a wedding reception. Or keeping me company on a car ride. Or background when writing a blog post. Or cleaning my office. Or drowning out the highway noise outside my window. There is music to the rescue for any occasion!
The genre that rises to the top of my list most often: folk rock.
For today, I settled on a (relatively) recent musical discovery of an American singer/songwriter/guitarist who joined my list of favorites.
She has much in common with the favorites of my youth…Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins, Bonnie Raitt….
Although she originally appealed to a more country music audience, I happened upon her music about 20 years ago when I heard this song.
I was hooked.
I have seen her perform several times in the last decade. Lucky for me – and the audience – she included This Shirt on the set list every time.
Mary Chapin Carpenter
performing This Shirt
Originally released on her album “State of the Heart” in 1989.
