Holy Tambourine! - The McCrary Sisters
Free concert? Yes, please! Nashville has free concerts all the time. Currently the "Nashville Dancin'" series is happening on Thursday nights. Since I have friends visiting from out of town, I thought it would be fun to show them how awesome and active Nashville is. Last night it was Shooter Jennings, Royal Southern Brotherhood, McCrary Sisters, Raelyn Nelson and Britt Ronstadt.

The McCrary Sisters sing what I would call a Gospel Blues Americana, so it's not really my cup of tea; however, I was amazed my one of the sister's tambourine skills. Have you ever seen a tambourine solo? I can now say yes to this question and it was mesmerizing. I searched and searched for a video to show you, but I came up short. This is as good as I could find on the internet. In this video the McCrary Sisters are playing with the great Buddy Miller (who is featured). It shows the sisters and toned down version on the tambourine solo. Hopefully it will be enough to give you an idea. Click this link --> here <-- and scroll to the bottom of the page. It is the last video on the page. Sorry, I am not able to embed it in my blog.
If you ever have the chance to see the McCrary Sisters then it is worth it if only to sit in amazement while Regina plays the tambourine. Also, I challenge you to film it and put it on YouTube so the rest of the world can say they have seen a tambourine solo!
