One of the most wonderful feelings I have is when I stumble upon talented people who I didn't know about. I don't get out much anymore so the internet is my way around most of the time. Here are the people who I have recently found out about. I believe I will keep them in my musical life from now on.
First of all while watching The Reno Brothers on RFD TV I was mesmerized by the big voice (small girl) belonging to Tasha Harris. I set about looking for her records only to read of her troubled life that seems to be keeping her away from her fans. I have to settle for what ever Youtube has of her music.
Mean Mary has knocked me plumb out!! I wish I lived somewhere close so I could walk in the woods and hear her playing her Goodtime and singing Big Red Barn!! Mary has some Ellie May in her , you know the critters and the cut off shorts and she is pretty like Ellie but mercy the talent she has! If Lester and Earl showed up at the Clampet's Mary could jump right in and fit right in. I can still dream can't I?
Last but not anywhere near least is The Link Family. Carolina In The Pines is so beautiful I could put it on repeat for a couple of years. Every member plays astonishingly well that it makes me ashamed to own a banjo. But I am so happy they are what they are and that is Super Stars in my book. Like Tasha and Mary. On my facebook wall I have a link to Carolina In The Pines of which I said" I tore open my soul and this came out!" I love them that much!

The video of them at Silver Dollar City is so good. I have watched it over and over! I guess I ought to move along to one of their other songs!
