Nothing With Strings

Commentator Bailey White presents another Thanksgiving Day story for All Things Considered. This year she chronicles the exploits of two ditzy sisters trying to find a place to leave the ashes of their recently departed mother. One of them has ended a love affair with a banjo player. Along the way they encounter a spoon player who introduces them to his family and its odd ways. A night swim in murky water provides a moment of release for the sisters in a long day of disappointment. Full of characters and humorous circumstances, White presents a southern tour de force for listeners.
