With the blackberries blooming behind the chicken house and Blackberry Winter making me wish I hadn’t put up all my winter clothes I was reminded of the old tune Blackberry Blossom. The tune is upbeat and does indeed make you think of spring dotted with blackberry blooms after a long tough winter.
We haven’t done the song in years, but Paul and Mark used to have fun playing around with the tune back in the day. I went back and found the video we uploaded in 2009. Hard to believe how young my nephew Mark was.
Chitter hadn’t even picked up the fiddle when the video was filmed. I’m thinking she needs to give the old tune a try and see what is sounds like when a pretty fiddling girl plays it.
