There is a sense in which every C2C throws up one act who puts on a performance that instantly gives them a profile in the UK — the kind usually earned after years of graft over here. This year actually provides two of those moments, and both of them on the Saturday.
The first comes courtesy of Ashley McBryde , who is nothing short of a revelation. It sets the tone for what is, in truth, more a driving southern rock set than a country exercise. The Shires introduce the spotlight stage arrival of Jillian Jacqueline.
Nettles, who is incredible vocal form, reduces the entire O2 to a hushed reverie as she chews on the tearful words. If anyone hears a pin drop, it presumably produces a splashing sound on the floor. They deserve a headline slot next time. As earlier intimated, there is another set today over on the spotlight stage that will likely go down in C2C history. That moment belongs to Lukas Nelson. Tonight it seems he is on the fast track to becoming one in his own right. She is clearly happy to be in this exalted position: First and foremost, what is so impressive is the risk Musgraves takes with this high-profile set.
No-one else across the entire weekend tries to pull off something as ambitious as she does, effectively turning the headline set into something of a beautifully-conceived showcase for her latest material. When she opens with new song Slowburn — taken from her upcoming album Golden Hour — it sets the tone for a spectacular and spellbinding evening not just in terms of content but also in mood.
She has, after all, already played C2C before and wowed it by bringing her wittiest music to the fore, and is clearly not intent on giving everyone the exact same set as two years ago. That gamble pays off in the best sense — this is a Kacey Musgraves show the likes of which has not been seen before. What's more, the new music aired from Golden Hour is superb, from the life-affirming strains of Love Is A Wild Thing, Butterflies and Rainbow the latter played on piano on the spotlight stage , to the heartbreak of Space Cowboy and curveball disco-tinged odyssey of High Horse replete with neon inflatable balls bouncing around the crowd.
The message writ clear is thus: Day three begins courtesy of the much-hyped Midland. Have a Happy New Year!! You just made my day! Friday, December 30, A Year in Review. Number one being I got married! Then I opened my etsy shop. And most recently I announced the opening of a brick and mortar shop I'll be a part of.
Thanks so much for sharing this!: Exactly what I needed for a fun review project. I'll try to take some pictures and post on my blog with link to this post so you can see the results! Here are photos from my students. As my way of saying thanks for your fractions project, I'd love to give you a free copy of my new math project, Design a Cube City. Let me know if you want one! What a great way to apply fraction operations! Tara The Math Maniac.
I adapted it to use with fourth graders, and I'll be using this next week with fifth graders. Thanks so much for sharing!
Thanks for sharing the information. That is very helpful for increasing my knowledge in this field. From one teacher to another This is not only free, it is authentic, educational and fun!
I have a list a mile long of projects and activities to blog about, but I'm having such a hard time finding The first one I want to share is the mini-project we did did to review adding, subtracting, and multiplying fractions. You can see my other fraction posts at the links below for more fraction activities, fraction anchor charts, and fraction notebook pages.
I guess we've done a lot with fractions over the past year or two! Multiplying Fractions Blog Post. Adding and Subtracting Fractions Blog Post.
