The past couple weekends we have heard some terrific music at our local library by local musicians. Saturday, after Croton Earth Day, we saw All Lit Up perform honkytonk and rockabilly songs. Mikro was one of only 2 kids there, and I was so impressed at how grown up he is. We chose to sit in the back, instead of right in front of the speakers, but he wanted to be front row center, so we let him. He plunked himself down next to the band's sound guy and they chatted amiably throughout the evening. When he joined us, he told us all he had learned from their conversation about the band's instruments, and music in general. He had a great time. His favorite songs were Croton Canonball, Venom Wearing Denim, and Gonna Put On My Heels to Stand Up to You.
This weekend we saw Hope Machine, a band inspired by Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger, who do peace and protest songs. (We have their album.) His favorite this time was Ain't Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around. On the album, his favorite is Just the Messenger.
We love our library. The Children's Room looks great with its new paint job, and art by local kids (including Mikro) hanging on the walls.
