Folk Thursday: Melanie at Woodyfest

This was easily the best part of Melanie’s set at Woodyfest. The rest of the performance was kind of so-so (too much new stuff, not enough classics), but this was fun — just Melanie being Melanie, in all her crazy joyful glorious childlike hippie splendor, merging two songs everybody knew and loved, and just generally jacking up the space-time continuum for about eight wonderful, surreal moments on a warm summer evening on the outskirts of a little town in Oklahoma.

This was one of those experiences I am pretty sure I will be taking out of my memory and looking at on bleak days when winter comes and I need a little sunshine and hope and happiness to warm me.
