Christy McWilson and the West Seattle 2

Folk, Country, Blues

Christy was born into a family of musicians, spending her formative years near Downey, California. I was close enough to Bakersfield to drive up and hear Merle Haggard once or twice, and was definitely, utterly, completely influenced by the LA sound of the 70s: Stone Poneys, Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris, and Poco.
