Songs Adrienne Young and Little Sadie play for 'World Cafe':
- "The Art of Virtue"
- "My Love Will Keep"
- "Hills & Hollers"
Bluegrass sweetheart Adrienne Young and her band Little Sadie's second album, The Art of Virtue, examines modern life through a prism of collective wisdom, the kind passed along in America's agricultural past.
Adrienne Young's new writing stems from her impressions of Ben Franklin's ideas of Amercan society.
Virtue has been called sweet and uplifting, two adjectives often associated with their first full-length, Plow To The End Of The Row. And true to Young's debut, the new record hearkens back to simpler times while remaining contemporary.
That approach becomes evident without hearing a single song: Taking its title from the writings of Ben Franklin, the album includes an inspired cover of a Grateful Dead tune.
In her lyrics for the title track, Young writes, "Gonna start a revolution, Made of action, not of words, Practicing the Art of Virtue."
