Lord have mercy on my rough and rowdy ways

The Head and the Heart.
I've had their self titled album since February.
And as I ease (slowly, I might add) out of my Ceremonials stage, I have rediscovered this folky little gem. Particularly one song that has lulled me to sleep for the past couple nights. In a good way:

And so good live right?
A quick story:
I traveled to Israel this summer throughout the end of June and all of July (see previous post).

Two negatives about this amazing, life changing experience (that I am so grateful for):
1. I missed the Friday Night Lights series finale
2. I couldn't be in Newport, RI for the last weekend of July for the folk festival

Some things you should know:
Though I do not live in Rhode Island, I spend many summer days every year on my grandfather's sailboat in Newport, RI.
Very close to Fort Adams, the site of the Newport Folk Festival.


Fort Adams right behind my brother's knee.

So close!

Take a guess at the 2011 lineup.
That's right, among others (Tegan and Sara, the Decemberists, Freelance Whales, Delta Spirit!) I missed an almost perfect opportunity to see The Head and the Heart.

Now don't get me wrong, I wouldn't trade my Israel trip for anything in the world, but you should know that I plan on not only attending the Newport Folk Festival next summer, but seeing the Head and the Heart live at some point.

Because they are so good. And as I listen to their recently released itunes session album, I can't help but gush about how much I am enjoying their music right now.
