Last Sunday, Monica (Li’l Mo) Passin hosted a Loretta Lynn birthday tribute at Banjo Jim’s featuring herself, Elena Skye, Amy Allison, and Laura Cantrell.  All in all it was a wonderful evening.  Amy Allison brought her wonderful, unique voice.  Laura brought her pristine sound, individual take on some melodies, and the knowledge of a radio host.  This was my first introduction to Elena Skye and she was quite the performer.  Li’l Mo and was also excellent and made solid choices in her selection of Lynn’s songs.  Boo Reiners provided solid accompaniment on guitar.  Set list:

1) Blue Kentucky Girl – LC

2) Walked Away from the Wreck – AA

3) You Ain’t Woman Enough to Take My Man – ES

4) Whistpering Sea – LM

5) When a Tingle Becomes a Chill – LC

6) Another Man Loved Me Last Night – AA

7) Don’t Come Home A Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ On Your Mind) – ES

8) Fist City – LM

9) Rated X – LC

10) God Gave Me a Heart to Forgive – AA

11) If You’re Not Gone Too Long – ES

12) Wings Upon Your Horns – LM

13) Lead Me On – LC 

14) If I Could Hear My Mother Pray Again? – AA

15) You’re The Reason Our Kids Are Ugly – ES with BR

21) Van Lear Rose – LC

22) Baby? – AA

23) One’s On the Way – ES

24) The Pill – LM

25) Coal Minor’s Daughter – All

As I wrote up the set list it reminded me of just how strong a performer Elana Skye was.  Along with Laura’s version of Van Lear Rose and Amy Allison’s version of Walked Away from the Wreck I recall her songs most vividly.
