Sol Driven Train, from Charleston SC, is one of the bands I work with. I admire their tenacity, ethics and LOVE their music.
The band came to stay with us Friday as they played here in Richmond. For Fridays dinner I made a big pot of STOUP, the soup that eats like a meal. Friday stoup was a combination of keilbasa, lentils, tomatoes, corn and pasta and it was excellent. I served it with crusty sweet bread and the guys loved it.
Next day, I made a southern bruch with bacon, scrambled eggs with cheese, biscuits, gravy, and grits. Joel brought in a watermelon the guys had picked up in South Carolina and we had a feast before the boys piled back onto the bus and headed out for West Virginia.
If you ever get a chance to offer a band room and board for the night, do it. Musicians are one of God’s most excellent creations and they never fail to give of themselves and their talent to brighten our lives.
