Up to the Mountain - Patty Griffin's tribute to MLK

Because Monday we celebrate his life. And because I'm going to see Patty (with Emmylou Harris, Shawn Colvin, and Buddy Miller) in concert next week.

Those are powerful photos. I have seen some of them but not all in one collection. Great find.

that was great! I had to watch it twice!

Sageweb & boy: Glad you liked it. As JB at My Grey Garden says, I'd pay to hear her sing the phone book. And this song, w/ the photos, is especially moving.

Shawn Colvin! Love.Her.
Hi! I'm visiting (:

Elizabeth said...

Hi Hat, nice to have you! And yes, I love her too. "A Few Small Repairs," is one of my favs. I watched your Runway recap, and the "spanking." Both great. It was late last night and I was too sleepy to leave a comment, but I will.

I love Patty Griffin. What a great pairing of stirring music and photos.

Me too. She's shoving everyone else out of my CD player lately. Are you going to see her next week?
