Here’s a discovery I made this evening on America’s National Public Radio NPR.org, which features a song each day.
I’d never heard of the band The Steel Wheels before, but the song title caught my eye as we in Winnipeg, Canada continue to have high heat and humidity, but no significant rain in Manitoba’s portion of the Red River Valley in what seems like weeks. I watered the new lawn for a long time last evening, and a bit today. I enjoy the heat and will sure miss it when summer ends, but some rain would be good to moisten the parched ground.
“Rain in the Valley” showcases the four voices of the Americana folk-roots music group, from Virginia, USA. The NPR review describes the song, from their 2012 album Lay Down, Lay Low as “sparse and dense all at once…“
Now you know a little about why this is my song of the day for today. Thanks for joining me here, and please enjoy.
Here’s the official video for the song from The Steel Wheels’ YouTube channel:
