Drifted Apart

Tift Merritt

You are a child when love is born,
Can’t stay a child for long.
Maybe the good times are up ahead,
Maybe those times are gone.
The same things keeping us together are the very ones making it hard.
Better take a look around,

Andrew Bird’s “Danse Caribe” on BLUEGRASS UNDERGROUND (PBS)

Taped 333-feet below ground, deep inside Tennessee’s Cumberland Caverns, this 12-part “musical adventure” series features both well-established and top emerging artists within the broad spectrum of Bluegrass, Jamgrass, Roots &Americana genres. Singer/violinist Andrew Bird has brightened the national Alternative scene for more than 15 years. With his unique indie-folk rock and a cameo performance by Tift Merritt, “Danse Caribe” from Episode Two of BLUEGRASS UNDERGROUND Season Three is a brilliant sample from a most unpredictable show (in the best way, of course).
