As I've mentioned, my good friend, Amber, at Blue Mango has been hosting Friday cocktails that feature videos of great singers and musicians. I love that idea. To kick off the new year, she's created a button and is spreading the word around blogland.
This week's Friday cocktail at Canyon Wren Cottage is showcasing two of my favorite singers. I first learned about Marc Broussard when I saw his "Home" video in the middle of the night as Hurricane Katrina was slamming the Gulf Coast. It was a moving video, especially considering Broussard is from a small town not too far from New Orleans.
I've had the opportunity to see him in person, first on the Rock Boat, and then in Austin this past year. He puts on an energetic and entertaining show.
As I was looking through his Youtube videos, I saw that he has a few duets with Sara Bareilles. No doubt you've heard her popular song, "Love Song," but if you haven't heard her entire CD, you've been missing out.
This week's Friday cocktail is called "Many the Miles." Enjoy and have a great weekend!
