Glad you liked it!

For an acoustic guitar world connection, she does a version of Joni Mitchell's "Down to You" on her record "The New Bossa Nova" that's just wonderful.

I sent this song to a friend who I know will like it as well.

Another I forgot to add to my original post is this gal - I bet you'll like her too if you don't already know about her!

Emily Saliers wrote this one. I love her songs-she uses a lot of finger picking.

So glad to see Alison Krauss get a mention.

For something less well known, check this out. This young lady is channeling Peggy Lee in a most uncanny and delightful way. Super stuff.
