Last weekend our place in Sisters just went from The House of Healing to The House of Folk Music Extraordinaire. These unbelievably talented, beautiful, soulful women all graced the home with their presence while attending the Sisters Folk Festival.

And although I wasn't there, I am certain the house will never be the same, and when I next visit, their blessings of music will be felt throughout.

The Wailin' Jennys

Rose Polenzani

Leela Grace

I was already familiar, and in love with, The Wailin' Jennys and Rose Polenzani, and now, of course, am thoroughly obsessed with Leela, and her sister, Ellie, Grace.

Last year, for a whole different reason, the home was filled with the beauty of Kate Power. Her husband, aka Cute Steve, wasn't there, but he rocks, too.

For the same occasion the house held my gal, Tracy Grammer, who was hugely helpful in launching the Sisters Folk Festival, originally.

All these tremendous artists came to me through one tremendous music promoter, and friend, Jess.

I thought I had music in my life before I met you. I was so wrong.

I thought the house in Sisters was ideal before, again, I was wrong.

Now it is.

Thank you.

Wow, thank you for this post. You know there is nothing I love more than sharing music with people, and nobody I love to share it with more than you. Seriously, it is so gratifying when people actually hear, really HEAR, the music that I promote/love.

Thanks again for letting me stay there and bring all my musician friends with me!!

I love this. Your house in Sisters could not have been the more perfect place. I keep thinking about all that beautiful music, all those wonderful artists being together.
Thanks for introducing me to a whole new world of music. I have a few of the CDs and plan to get more. Pure light.

Love music. I've often said it feels as though music shines its light on me. It seems like this happened here, too.

I love that there is a place called Sisters and that you have a house there. I want a place like Sisters in my life.
