About the Book

Grammy Award-winning, founder and frontman for the band Old Crow Medicine Show, Ketch Secor, and award-winning illustrator Higgins Bond bring an Americana fable to life in this bold, sweeping story.

"The songs they sang always lifted their spirits-
on good days or bad it was joyful to hear it.
And even when storms hit those Tennessee hills,
the music they played made their worries stand still."

Lorraine and her Pa Paw spend their days celebrating life with the music of the Tennessee hills. With Pa Paw's harmonica and Lorraine's pennywhistle, the pair can face just about anything. But when a fearsome storm rolls in and their instruments are nowhere to be found, can Lorraine find the music inside herself to get them through?
