Top 20 Songs on Acoustic Pie, November 2012

San Diego songwriters are ably represented in the Acoustic Pie Top 20 this month by Sara Watkins at no. 3 and Nate Donnis of the Donnis Trio at no. 11. For any listeners in the San Diego area, there will be a treat this month: Sara Watkins, San Diego native and founding member of Nickel Creek, is doing a fun show at LeStat’s on Monday, December 17. Sara will be being filmed for a television show called “The Song that Changed My Life” and you have a chance to be part of the live audience. And the tix are only $5, too. That’s a steal. There’s more info under Latest News on Sara’s website.

Paul Simon’s song “April Come She Will” (no. 19) makes me go “Mmmmmmmm”. Such a sweet and tidy song. I love that album, The Paul Simon Songbook. It’s his first solo album, in sparce acoustic arrangements, released in 1965 only in the U.K. while his duo work with Art Garfunkel was starting to take off in the U.S. I got it around 2005 when it was finally released in the U.S. You can read more about it in Wikipedia. The whole album is yummy.

Thanks, as always, for listening and voting for your favorites on the Pie!
