Saint Elizabeth Dobro Blues

There's something infectious about songs in this family. All it takes is one person to hum a bar, and someone else picks up the tune and carries it around with them. Usually it's Kitty Bill. But any one of us is susceptible to the draw of melody. Even Einstein.

There's something very cool when a Dad picks up a song his child is learning and plays around with it. I think it gives a child more confidence in a way, more respect for what they're learning-- after all, music is cool! Especially when Einstein plays it. The kids always get a kick out of it.

I don't know quite what else to say about this, just that I have to share it with you. This is our Saint Elizabeth song morphed and played by Einstein on a homemade dobro. It makes me smile every time I hear it.

  5. I'm from MEMPHIS for heaven's sake and had to look up a dobro.

    I have seen them before, just never knew that's what they are called. I'd love to see a picture of this dobro.

    Rocking, Einstein, Rocking. Right on.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a message. I appreciate your sweet words so much!
