The Bricks Under Our Feet
Artist: Robin & Mark Thompson
Genre: Folk & Singer-Songwriter
*Sound balance is best when listened through headphones. The area in which we live has come to be known as the Little Cities of Black Diamonds-- lots of coal was mined here. The area also saw a lot of clay mined and manufactured into bricks and various kinds of tile. Like coal mining, the mining and manufacture of objects made from clay was dangerous work. We love to walk at the cemetery in Shawnee OH-- it's a beautiful and peaceful place. Most of the roadways in the cemetery are brick and, long ago, were made by hard-working hands. This tune is named in honor of those workers and all in the region who worked in the mining and manufacture of clay.
