Friday Cocktail

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!

Thanks for sharing her Sandra. I just went to her site and have listened to a few clips. She's very good-so enjoyable. I'd love to catch her live-doesn't look like she'll be in my area any time soon but...

Happy New Year to you and yours. I look forward to your updates! :-)

Hi Sandra,
I have been on a much needed blogger break but am now up and running once again.
I've missed you!
Hey, thank you so much for your comment on my blog and for your E mail and phone number! What a shocker! I would love to hear your lovely Texas accent!
Baby Noel is doing really well and has been healed of her Spina Bifida! She is quite the little miracle!
I do hope you and your family have a blessed New Year and I so look forward to getting to know you better!
I look forward to all your blog posts this coming year too!
