The Barrel House Mamas Album Cover
I wasn’t able to attend their concert at the Winter Sun Hall last night, but I did meet up with the Mamas today for some puppy petting at the Humane Society’s 6th annual “Stand up for Strays,” where I was taking photos for the Floyd Press. And Joe and I hooked them up for some down home pond swimming at Zephyr Farm before they headed back to Asheville. They were on their way to dive off the dock when I stopped them for this photo shoot. “It’s good enough to be your next album cover,” I said when I previewed the shot. Of course, they may have to cut some people out. Either that or hand them some instruments and teach them to play.
Post notes: The Barrel House Mamas music can be heard HERE. The quartet includes Molly Reed, Jane Kramer Edens, Eleanor Underhill, and Anna Baumann-Smith (my son Josh's girlfriend). My husband Joe (the only man pictured above) is not a Barrel House Mama. Check out Doug Thompson's photo's HERE.
