Shabbat Music Break

Shabbat is upon us once again and once again I have interrupted my blogging for a musical interlude for an artist that truly takes my breath away. Alison Krauss and Union Station have been performing together since the late 1980s. Alison began performing at the age of 10 and was recording her first solo album at the tender age of 14. A true prodigy. She has released 14 albums, appeared on numerous soundtracks, and is credited with helping to revive bluegrass music appreciation. As of the 2011 Grammy Awards, she has won 26 Grammys, making her the most awarded singer, the most awarded female artist, and tied for the third most awarded artist overall in Grammy history. (She also writes, produces, and arranges other artist's works.) She has one of the clearest and purest voices in music today. She never hits a false note and to watch her play the fiddle is pure magic. This song Paper Airplane is the title track off of her latest album with Union Station. A fabulous piece of work. Please enjoy! Shabbat Shalom to all who observe.
