Mary ~ “Tidings Concert” (song 6)

Here’s “Mary“, a song Allison Crowe first heard on an episode of the “Sons of Anarchy” television drama – and which got her into Patty Griffin, the song’s brilliant creator. Allison’s friend, driver, and European tour manager, the legendary Axel Dollheiser, was Patty’s driver in the 1990s and has been raving about her ever since – particularly the “Living With Ghosts” album. Things happen when and how they do – and, it’s a confessional scene involving Gemma Teller (played by Katey Sagal) on SoA that brought this music into Allison’s repertoire and “Tidings Concert“.

Up to the Mountain ~ “Tidings Concert” (song 10)

Continuing as best we can, (counting, that is,), in reverse chronology – presenting the songs of “Tidings Concert” – here’s a tune written by Patty Grffin, an artist Allison Crowe discovered while watching a favourite television show, “Sons of Anarchy“. This particular song, not in the SoA soundtrack, was recommended to Allison by Canadian acoustic soul-singer Bob Benvenuti (seek him out!): “Up to the Mountain“.
