road trip travels: missouri moon

This summer, and beyond, we're taking you along on The Great American Road Trip.

I’m partnering up with A Traveler’s Library to add musical ideas to the book and film suggestions for journeys through the regions of the United States the Library is discovering for you.

Recently, the Road Trip traveled through Missouri. There you met Rhonda Vincent, who grew up there playing in her family's band, and has gone on to make an award winning career on her own as a bluegrass artist. Here she is, first surviving a broken guitar string, then singing the song Missouri Moon.

Look for Great American Road Trip posts on Wednesdays at A Traveler's Library and here at Music Road. Also read over at the Library for information on travels to France and other adveneures, and here at Music Road for journeys real and virtual to Ireland, Scotland, Cape Breton, and other places.

For more about the road trip (and a look at some great road songs) see Great American Road Trip: Music begins
