I love music. I was a fine arts major in college and part of the curriculum was music appreciation. I used to sit in the library at Southern Illinois University – Edwardsville and listen to records from their huge record collection. They had study tables with a Bogen turntable in the center and good headphones. I carried my own Koss Pro liquid filled over the ear set from home. Since this was back in the 60s it was the era of flower power, hippies and Arlo Guthrie. The music scene exploded to include anything. I was particularly fond of acoustic folk music.
One of my favorite artists today is Abigail Washburn. Her albums are beautifully simple, no big noisy band, no amplified anything. She plays her banjo, sometimes with another banjo player, and sings. That’s it! K.I.S.S.. Below is a picture of her and a YouTube video of her song: “Nobody’s Fault But Mine”. I’ve been listening to her singing for over an hour with a good set of headphones and the sound is pure, peaceful and beautiful. I hope you like this sample of her work.
