Holy Water was written back in January of 2017 (pause to think about that) but it was always been more about the bigger picture of cognitive dissonance than the widespread example of it that I see in politics.

I'm a Shakespeare nerd as well so I love the idea of blood…

Carole Walker selected forMusic in the Round XIII 

Music in the Round is a unique concert format that originated in Nashville's Bluebird Cafe and grew organically from the traditional jam session. The only rule: the artist must play songs they've written themselves and on the instruments on which they were written. 
Audiences get to hear the artists talk about their songwriting, particularly the stories and emotions surrounding the song's creations. It's a treat for music lovers featuring some of the most talented musicians Columbus, Ohio has to offer!
