Routes & Branches 2/1/14

It was sad news this week when I heard about the passing of Pete Seeger. I was only 5 years old when my parents took me to my first Pete Seeger concert. I can remember the whole audience singing along with Pete which was his favorite part of performing. Pete was an inspiration to me because he made music that was accessible to everyone and often spoke of the struggles we all go through in this life. I learned several of his songs when I started playing guitar in high school. He is still an inspiration since he kept living his songs right up to the day he passed. God is counting on us now to continue Pete's work by keeping his music alive and well.

Today's show also had a guest appearance from Lindsay Lou Rilko who is better known as Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys. She stopped by without the Flatbellys this afternoon and shared with me some of her family history and how she became a member of the Flatbellys. She sang a beautiful a cappella tune she wrote called "Smooth & Groovy" with so much feeling that she filled our studio with the sound of her voice.
