Ashland, Kentucky

I had a bad head cold last week and fell behind not only in keeping up here but also in sorting and filing photos. As a result, everything is a mess. By the end of the week, I was feeling much better and was able to get tickets in the balcony area of the John Prine concert here in Ashland. It was a great time, I really enjoyed it. The place was nearly filled up. I'm not a long-time follower of John Prine, but last year I was in Joseph Beth Bookseller in Lexington, Kentucky when I heard this shrill voice singing over the loudspeakers. It was Iris Dement doing a duet with John Prine and it was such a strange tune with lyrics that I couldn't believe was coming from the speakers that I bought the album over it. It still gets lots of airplay on my Itunes. Sadly, Iris wasn't there to sing this tune on Saturday.

Link to the Youtube video is here, you won't regret it.
