Before I hit the weather, Sara Pope over at Monkeyclaus and in Beech Grove says bring on more Robin Wynn, she dropped us this quick note Tuesday:

Sara Writes:
Monkeyclaus loves Robyn Winn! More More More..

Not a problem Sara, will do, at the end of today’s cast!

Tuesday ended up being a very nasty day toward dark as freezing rain settled in across the entire area. Very cold air became dammed up next to the mountains which allowed rain that fell late in the day to freeze on contact. That caused several accidents in Nelson and surrounding counties. Brent’s Mountain, which is notorious for freezing up in winter weather had several cars that could not make it up the mountain blocking the road. Other accidents occurred on U.S. 29 at Woods Mill. As the night wore on temperatures slowly started rising allowing the freezing rain begin turning to plain rain in some areas.

Wednesday look for rain in the morning, perhaps changing back to freezing rain or snow in the afternoon as temperatures begin a fall late in the day. By Wednesday night some light snow is possible as another burst of low pressure gets nearby. On the mountains an inch or two of snow is not out of the question by late Wednesday night. I can’t totally rule out some snow accumulation in the valley since this new low pressure area is forecast to form. I’ll keep an eye on that over the next few hours.

By Thursday sunny skies move back in. A more significant storm system may affect the area by the end of the weekend.

You can check out and buy all of Robin’s latest CD releases here.

Whether playing solo, or accompanied by her six-piece band, Robin Wynn’s shows are marked with high energy and good spirits, with her distinctive, smooth-like-honey/sharp-as-a-tack vocals cresting the wave. With her ear for hooks, Robin writes music you swear you’ve heard before, yet is always unique and fresh, often drawing comparisons to Bonnie Raitt and Lucinda Williams at her most “Americana,” Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth) and Liz Phair at her rockingest.

A hard-working bunch of players, Robin and her band performed over a hundred shows up and down the east coast in 2006, gathering enthusiasts at every stop. Bandmates include Lea Calvani (Dirty Dishes) on percussion and vocals, John Allietta (Thrum, Naked Puritans) on drums, Clayton Avent (Six Day Bender) on cello and guitar, Blake Wheeler (Bleak, Goldenhour) on bass and vocals, and Mark Goldstein on guitar, keyboards, and vocals.

Spring 2007 marks the release of Robin Wynn’s latest studio achievement “A Few Dusty Miles,” a full-length CD of eleven new songs which includes such favorites from her recent tour dates as the sultry ballad “Bottle,” the quirky half-time rag “Sweet Sally,” and “Soldier,” an instant pop classic that will stay in your head for days – and is also available to listen on her page at
