This is all kinds of awesome. "Snow Day," written and performed by a very cool 8-year-old girl named Emma at the 2009 Spring Coffee Shop Jam, at The Columbia City Theater in Seattle, WA. This is the same event, same teachers, same group of kids where that "Folsom Pwison Blues" video came from, last week. There are more videos here, and quite a lot of gems within the mix. Rob, from Hampton Guitars, who teaches Emma and the previously blogged Wesley, says:
Emma announced during a guitar lesson one day that she felt like writing a song. I started playing some chords, and this is what she came up with. Amazing. The Jam's a chance for Heartwood Guitar Instruction students to showcase their talents. Enjoy!I'm pretty nuts about the original punk/hardcore/deathmetal jams written and performed by 9-year-old Connor, too -- 'specially DEATH NIGHTMARE. WTF with all these rockin' kids, Seattle, is it something in the water up there?
