Thanks tumeric and bluesman, I was not aware of the date but I certainly have taken the opportunity to tip a pint to Robert Johnson tonight.  With that, I'll just add a song, one of my favorites.  ..

Lately I've been brewing a LOT - getting ready for the summer party season, we've got something this month on the 27th and 29th, next month in Lyon for a weekend and then July 9th for the 4th/14th/Son's b-day. With all that brewing I've been listening to Prairie Home Companion with the family on the deck, which is fun. They had a great band on recently, Old Crow Medicine Show. New "Old" folky stuff: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WyJIY-8IroY

Really liking it so far.

Heating up the mash water now and about to queue up Ferde Grofe's "Grand Canyon Suite".  Most people know it from the third movement ("On the Trail") for its uses on the Disneyland railroad, and probably more broadly, as (very cleverly applied!) incidental music in "A Christmas Story".  To me its one of my favorite things to listen to, particularly lately, and when I discovered it, I realized that it had basically everything I loved about Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" but had failed to find in Gershwin's other works.  Turns out Gershwin wrote the piece for two pianos, and then Grofe took it from there, first arranging it for Paul Whiteman's jazz band and then scaling up with a couple symphonic orchestrations, the latter being what most of us know as Rhapsody in Blue.  Not to discount Gershwin's authoring, but Grofe definitely left his fingerprints on those arrangements!

It really is a lovely suite as a whole, the 4th and 5th movements being my favorites (the 4th has a very romantic, lyrical melody, and the 5th weaves the various themes back to a frenzied climax).  Makes me want to get in a car and drive west!

If I've already posted about this one previously in this massive thread, my apologies...now on to getting this mash started!

They did a fine job with one. Really nice harmonies.  8)

Bluegrass is real American Roots music.

I always have Slacker radio going in the garage when I brew.  Usually something like Smashing Pumpkins or Sublime radio.  Brewing and music go hand.

I go regional/ethnic playlist on the IPod - music based on what I'm brewing: Irish drinking songs for a Red ale, then Oom Pah for an Alt or weizens, and down the line with Zydeco/NOLA/Bounce for spicy beer, Bluegrass with beers brewed with bourbon, Hits of the Bag Pipes for Scottish brews, Chi Blues for APAs, secular Christmas music for the holiday ale (staying away from the religious cause I wouldn't want little baby Jesus to get any idea).  I have no Ravi Shankar for IPAs.  Can someone send me some?

I like to mix it up as well. If I had to rely on commercial radio, I would opt for silence. I have a very diverse collection of music in my iPod. I love the shuffle option as I won't hear the same song for at least six months or so.

Diversity is the spice of my music portfolio.  8)
