Thanks to Tim Hibbs for this photo of last weekend's holiday celebration at the Ryman Auditorium with Emmylou Harris, Rufus Wainwright, Martha Wainwright, Loudon Wainwright III, Alison Krauss, and many others! All of these folks brought a message of peace and light much needed during this particularly strange and dark winter solstice. So thankful for them all.
