Some Travelin’ Music Please

shudders on a restoration project in Port Royal.

This week will see me on the road twice: once Sunday coming back from St. Mary’s, and again tonight, heading back to St. Mary’s for a meeting and presentation. The trip is about three hours along Route 17 through the various peninsulas in eastern Virginia. I travel through a number of historic areas, in particular the historic town of Port Royal, where the photo above is from. Many of the historic buildings there are falling into ruin, while others are being restored. It’s a pleasant drive, and is always made better by good tunes. Some highlights include songs by two friends, Matt Burke and Mike Vasas, and their respective bands. Also, my favorite live performance by James Taylor of Country Road. Stick through it for the end, which always gives me chills. You can find the playlist on Spotify. Any suggestions for things I should be listening to? Throw me a comment, or add it to this playlist on Spotify.
