Leon Redbone

Leon Redbone

Last night I had the distinct pleasure of seeing the inestimable Mr. Leon Redbone again. What a performance, and what a performer! He is a joy to see on stage. Everything from the beautiful music to the vaudeville-esque patter between songs harkens back to a small town bandstand on a warm summers evening in an earlier, more genteel era. Ahhh. It's just great, great music performed by a talented, one-of-a-kind, perhaps last-of-his-kind, artist. I highly recomend checking out his website,, and going to see him if he is your area.

For your listening pleasure, I have included a YouTube clip of Leon singing "Melancholy Baby."

God love you!
Father V.

Great! Just what I need -- another reason to spend too much money on iTunes!
