This is one of those instances where I am so excited by something I just have to share:

Mr. Cleaver and I have seen Brown Bird in concert twice in the past 8 days – last week we saw them as the opener for the equally talented Low Anthem and  liked them so much that we went to a small show at the newish Mayo Street Arts Center Saturday night. Between the two show we’ve listened to their album The Devil Dancing at least a dozen times.

I’ve been on a big bluegrass/Americana kick for the past year or so and these folks are right in that wheelhouse. I’ve pasted a youtube link of “Bottom of the Bottle”  and ” Danger and Dread” below, but I’d also check out “Mabel Grey,” “Wrong Black Mare,” and “By the Reins,” but every song on this album is really really good!
