We've Got Long Songs This Week on Come by the Hills!

Alright, so here's what happened. I was sitting around all week procrastinating and wondering what I wanted to do for this week's episode of Come by the Hills, and then, like a firework streaking across the sky, it came to me. Since this is along weekend in Canada, why not do another "long songs" episode? (For my purposes, "long" means a duration of over 5 minutes.) So, that's what we're going to do.

This weekend is Victoria Day Weekend in Canada, and people are camping and letting off fireworks and doing all manner of great outdoorsy things to mark the unofficial beginning of summer. I've chosen to do this by playing a whole bunch of long songs. We'll have ballads and tales, poems and complex compositions, and we'll take a couple of breaks for "Fiddlin' Around" and "Celtic Covers," not to mention "Me Music," though that in itself fulfills the "long song" crytiria. In "Celtic Covers," we'll have an interesting instrumental take on what I think is a very Celtic-sounding Beetles song from The White Album, and in "Fiddlin' Around," we'll hear two tracks from the band Silly Wizard.

So, if you're up for some really long songs and want a great listening experience, join me, Sara Hillis, for three whole hours of Come by the Hills, the Celtic Music Show, on Sunday at 8:00 PM Eastern, replayed on Friday at 4:00 AM Eastern, 9:00 AM in the UK and Ireland!
