A Little Contemporary Folk Music

(Posted by Paige just in time for present-wrapping marathons — and beyond, of course.)

In case you need a little lift, here’s a link to a free streaming of a newly released album by The New Empires, a group of friends who met at Covenant College and have created their own unique blend of sounds. Matt Brown, the clever and quirky lead singer and songwriter, is a son of our church (Faith Reformed PCA in Quarryville, PA) who currently works at Covenant.

Favorite lines:

Bristlecone pine
You were awake when God heard the laugh of Abraham’s wife
And in your youth you couldn’t see the humor of it all

    Thanks for this Paige. Looking at the credits… They had me at Mandolins and Mellotrons! I’ll hav to listen later on, but this looks very interesting.

    Blessed and Merry* Christmas to you and you family and all the rest of the denizens of GB.


    * So, at Green Baggins, can we also wish a Pippin Christmas or a Bilbo Christmas? Why does the Brandybuck get all the publicity?

    Thanks for the heads up! I like that bristlecone line. I’ve hiked a couple times in the ancient bristlecone pine forest up in the White Mountains on the CA-NV border. It really is incredible to be among trees that are thousands of years old.

    If you haven’t sampled this album yet, you’re missing something fine! Try it out!
    Happy New Year, everyone.
