I was hoping to go to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival this weekend. It's held the first full weekend in May, and this year, it falls on Mother's Day weekend. Though this would not ordinarily hold me back, Stinkerbell is quite sick with some sort of viral pollution and the thought of being so far away from her doesn't sit well. So today we'll go to the doctor and take a few pictures to be certain it's not worse than I think it is.
Neil Young was spectacular. I've seen a lot of aging rockers in the past few years, and this man's unique voice is still as special today as it was 40 years ago. He was solo--not necessarily unplugged--and played an array of music from throughout his career. I thought several of his song's from last year's release, Le Noise, were spectacular, and moved me emotionally. I got chills listening to his song, Love and War. You can listen to the HD version here on YouTube. While there, listen to Walk With Me. The man is a genius with a guitar, but more than that, he's a very moving poet. A solo act is the perfect venue to demonstrate his writing and musical skills.
If you have the opportunity, don't miss this concert. It was totally worth the price of admission.
