Last weekend my sister and I went to see the Dixie Chicks- Accidents and Accusations World Tour 2006. It was so great!I have been a big fan of the Chicks since I bought their album- Home- a few years ago. I love their bluegrassy/country rock style. The concert was a lot of fun and included rousing renditions of songs like Sin Wagon, Wide Open Spaces, White Trash Wedding, There's Your Trouble- lots of fun to sing along to. My sis and I aren't exactly big concert going types, and being in our-Ahem- earlyISH 30's we wondered, will we look/feel like big dork/fogies?! But we didn't at all! There were lots of, well, CHICKS there- of all ages! Lots of groups of young girls and women but definitely some older, middle aged and mom types too. We had a great evening and were very impressed with the trio's music in person. There's something about hearing a group live that is very different than a cd. Some sound just as good or even better, some a lot worse. The Dixie Chicks were very much in the better category- beautiful instrumentation, harmony, and the lead singer Natalie can seriously sing! I like that she sounds equally good belting in out or singing soft in a song like Lullaby. Plus they are fun and entertaining and I like how their music kind of pokes fun at themselves and their country origins. They came out to music that sounded a lot like "Hail to the Chief" which I thought was pretty funny! I was kind of wondering how much of a crowd a country type band would attract here in New England, but there was a huge turnout, including lots of ladies in cowboy hats! Our cell phone pictures didn't exactly turn out, so I borrowed these shots of our concert from the Boston Globe. And here is a lovely picture of me in my concert t-shirt. Thanks to my sister for a great evening- Go Chicks!!
I'm a stay-at-home mom of five who likes photography, quilting, reading, cooking when I'm in the mood, watching movies, going to the beach, home renovation and decorating, swimming, and hanging out with my kids. At the moment I'm a bit obsessed with Downton Abbey.
I live in New England, and my favorite season is spring. I love the colors green and pink.
