Picnic in the rain, songs in the house--

James Krueger - read and listen and buy here

A picnic with many friends around a rural bonfire in the very lightest rain, not even pattering on the nearby pond, followed by a house concert with James Krueger . . . A lovely end to the day.

Extraordinary!  An extraordinarily talented writer with a real talent for poetic imagery.  Impressive poetic lines, beautiful and original.  Remarkable work!
- Judges’ Comments, Great American Song Contest
James’ poetry comes from a connection between the landscapes and the seasons of the northeast.  The emotion and spirit of James’ music is touching.
- Jay Ungar, noted American fiddler, composer and folklorist

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
