And then there was the time Emmylou Harris sang an Irish folk song with a whole bunch a fabulous people

This really should have been my Saint Patrick's Day post, but I got hung up on the monkeys.  Sorry about that.  Anyway, the combination of Emmylou Harris, Dick Gaughan, The McGarrigle Sisters, and Rufus Wainwright on a classic Irish folk tune like "Wild Mountain Thyme" is pretty potent.  Check it out.

You'll be humming that all day now, I bet.  You can thank me for that later.  There are far, far worse things to have stuck in your head.

Emmylou is great. I especially like her work with Dolly and ...was it Linda Ronstadt?

Thanks for your visit to my blog and your comment about the Scrabble tiles. I wish I could claim credit for the idea but alas--I saw it somewhere in blogland! LOL. I did come up with the idea to paint the racks that hold the tiles and that turned out pretty cute.

You, however, inspired my religious Easter display. :)
But I don't think mine looks as good as yours.

Thanks for the comment. Yep, it was Linda Ronstadt as the third part of the Trio. In fact, I discovered Emmylou through my mother's Linda Ronstadt albums when I was a kid.

If you haven't figured it out yet, I'm a HUGE fan of all things Emmylou. Ain't no one better.

You're the second commenter to mention me as an influence. It's flattering as heck, so I thank you.
