I met mandolinist and songwriter Mic Patrick at the Mike Block String Camp down in Florida a few years back. We swapped songs and he ended up covering “Rocky Mountain Skies” in the Brisbane-based bluegrass band The Company. They released it on their second album, Trouble, and brought both their version and our Cricket version onto Australia’s Radio National’s program The Inside Sleeve.
It’s time for clothes on top of clothes, hearty meals with hot drinks, and the fragile hope that you won’t hear a Christmas carol in a retail store until at least Thanksgiving. We hear ya! Grab your favorite sweater and let the crickets entertain you.
