    Her & I have the same birthday, but she was born 1 year before me. Interesting!

    Going to see her with 'A Prarie Home Companion' Friday in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Should be great!

    Beautiful voice. Discovered her on a Prairie Home Companion simulcast last year, just about jumped out of my pants when I was at a Decemberists show in April and realized she was playing with them.

    How is "Where Will You Be" not in the top 15? That song is gorgeous. Sara's voice gives me the chills on that song.

    Saw her in concert last night, and it was probably one of the best shows I've ever been to.

    That is a really great album. I'm with 'soulbleed' - "my friend" is fabulous. "Too Much" is pretty freakin awesome too though.

    I love Sara. I could listen to her sing and play endlessly.

    Listened to my friend's copy of the album while on a train ride. It's very solid.

    Beautiful voice and an amazing fiddle player. Her cover of Long Hot Summer Days is stunning. Can't wait for the debut album.
