“With My Parents”

This quarter’s Tell us Something was recorded on March 7th, 2012 at the Top Hat. The theme was “Rites of Passage“.

Grace Decker shares her story “With my Parents” exploring the rite of passage that is leaving home. Her story is underscored by the memory of the only time her parents took her and only her on a road trip.

Grace rolled into Missoula in the summer of 1994 and has been sending down deeper roots here ever since. She plays the fiddle to support her teaching habit –or it could be the other way around. She loves hot coffee, cold beer, hoarfrost, alpenglow, watching Missoulians dance, and chicken pot pie. She and Josh and their son Alden live in a little brick railroad house on the Northside with two dogs and 4 chickens (ok, they’re not actually IN the house).
