And Now, Something Nice to Take Us Into the Weekend

Here, it’s Sarah Harmer. I dare you not to like her. You can’t! It’s unpossible!
Enjoy your Friday evening. Go have fun. That’s an order.
I’m going with some of my best friends to watch a movie full scruffy handsome leather-duster-wearing men and galloping horses. Two of my favorite things.
I’m hoping to forget about the seething mobs for a little while.
Today, I found out that I have a position I can transfer to within my company. (They’re closing the office I currently work in, but are offering to relocate me.)
It’s been a hell of a few weeks, but today I have resolution and something to look forward to.
I really loved that, John–the lyrics and video and music. Thanks. :-)
I am heading off on a train trip to Ann Arbor, there to meet with my wife and celebrate my turning 40, with sushi, sake, family and friends.
See y’all on Monday.
I *love* Sarah Harmer. Glad to know I’m not the only one!
I’m off to the airport to pick up my VERY REPUBLICAN (Nixon was just misunderstood!?) parents. They’re staying for an entire week.
Wish me luck.
Sarah Harmer is fantastic. I love her song “Pendulums.” Check it out.
That was great- thanks! I’d never heard of her before, but that was a very nice bit of an oasis in an extremely busy Thanksgiving weekend.
Thanks for this video! I’d not heard of her before, this was fantastic. She’ll help fill a big ole Nickel Creek-shaped hole in my musical life!
Sarah Harmer is wonderful. Check out her “You Were Here” album; it also has an awesome wedding song, “Open Windows.”
John, did you find her via your request for musical re-hipification a few months back? If not, did you find any new music you love from the recommendations?
No, I’ve known of Sarah Harmer from back in the day.
Ok John you win, I like the music. In fact I’m sliding this one right inbetween a mix of HEM and Old Crow Medicine Band. But, I ask you, what is this music video about?
Seems like there is a disconnect between the song and the people messing around in the background. Sarah would have been better off standing in the ruins of a building playing her song with her band, sans three galavanting women in underskirts and one dude in fluffy tuxedo.
I do like the music.
This song, and even the video, has Allison Krauss’ fingerprints all over them!
Not that that’s bad, it’s just like, starting to get to be expected that any modern bluegrass that comes out nowadays is either going to be produces by Allison or produced to sound/look like it was produced by Allison.
