dawg reminded us that today, well yesterday now, was national 'unplugged' day. how these musical trends swing back and forth over time, and stir up so much emotion and controvery. when bob dylan 'sold out' and went (partially) electronic with his music in newport at a folk concert in the 1960s, fans were ready to fight and bleed. hopefully, in contrast, yesterday's national unplugged day strummed softly along in bloodless musical tribute....

Sheryl Crow and Kid Rock - Picture. Love this song and Kid Rock's husky, sexy voice. Love their harmony, too.

It's not so unusual. There are lots of cover bands that perform rock 'n roll with orchestras these days. We've seen a few and they're tremendous. <pause to search> Wow! Someone recorded and posted the very concert we attended, with the Virginia Symphony Orchestra! Not the best recording, but in person, it sounded better Watch for the electric violin.



We caught this on a concert channel recently. Not sure if David Bowie is your style, Addie, but we loved the 360 orchestra and choir Beck played his music with at Lincoln Center. The orchestra leader is the singer, Beck's, father.

Okay, I was at the laundromat and there were songs from the 70's (not disco) playing on the radio and singing along with the songs. There was an older looking lady across the mat singing along with them, too...turns out we are the same age...I am an older looking lady, too!
