I haven't heard the terms "porch music" or "kitchen music" so now I can add these to my vocabulary. On Saturday evenings, I love listening to American Roots with Nick Spitzer as I'm driving back from the college. I love that music, and just about all kinds of music. Thanks, Dac.

yes, washing the dishes is a very endearing trait

My parents and my sister all made music. I mostly listened. The only instrument I play is the radio (and I get static on that).
We call it porch music here, but I like the kitchen link. Those old timey songs connect better than much modern music.

Weve done porch and deck, and even (in the rain) garage. But the Freemans have such a nice kitchen - huge - we can sit in a circle very comfortably. Bud (my son-in-law) plays a mean bluegrass fiddle. Daughter Mary plays doghouse bass. Athens is full of guitar, mandolin, banjo players. Im the oldest in the group (by far) and can bring in some old-time songs on occasion (Mairzy Doats, W. C. Handy blues, etc.).

Popcorn and beer, often homemade.

Kitchen music is a new term, here it's called 'porch music.' But do understand it as the kitchen was sure to have heat during the winter. The wreck of the old 97 is a standard in c/w circles. Good blog

Enjoyed hearing about "kitchen music." I
hadn't heard the term before. Good things
happen in kitchens - brings everyone

Good morning, Dac. I enjoyed your Kitchen Music explanation--something I've never heard of.
I should tell my husband what you have over the kitchen sink. I haven't washed dishes in nearly 20 years...and that's a fact. I cook, he cleans the kitchen...and get a little perturbed if I try to re-clean or touch up here and there.
When I have women over for coffee or Bible study, we eat and drink coffee. Invariably, someone will say, Oh, let me help you with the dishes. I answer, "No, that's okay. I have a dishwasher."
