Road to Beech Grove


Artist: Robin & Mark Thompson
Genre: Folk & Singer-Songwriter
Duration: 00:01:45

Description:
This is just a single time through a new tune on which we've been working. The tune is named for a walk we used to take to an old church and burying ground. The last time we tried to make the walk, the road was impassable. I hope to get to make the walk again.

Thank you, @john-w-mckinstry.  The walk to Beech Grove is a pretty one.

@dusty-turtle, I'll have to remember the "Scrambled Eggs" thing, true or not.  :)

Robin Thompson: I wish I were good enough to be inspired by place first then put together a tune.  Usually, I put together a tune then it gets named at some point. 

I don't think that diminishes what you do, Robin.  You still pair the tune and place perfectly.  "Yesterday" is arguably Paul McCartney's best song even if he wrote the music with working words as "Scrambled Eggs."  The final product still made a great pairing.

P.S. I don't know if that's true about "Scrambled Eggs," but the fiction still makes the point.

Many thanks, @gordon-hardy & @dusty-turtle.  

Beech Grove Church and its burying ground is a special place.  It is, as you wrote, Dusty, an "out-of-the-way" place.  Anyone who goes there either intended to go there or they got lost going someplace else.  

I wish I were good enough to be inspired by place first then put together a tune.  Usually, I put together a tune then it gets named at some point.

Your lovely music tells me that "Beech Grove" must be a sacred place indeed.

When we write your musical biography, it will be called Robin's Sense of Place.  Your inspiration so often comes from the history and people embedded in very specific, out-of-the way places.  And your music displays remarkable empathy with and for others, even those you've never met.  This is such a delicate, mournful tune. It's just precious.
