”Feels Like Home” begins by welcoming you in from the rain the warmth of the hearth with the Paul Simon classic ”Kathy’s Song”. Before you know it, the rugs are rolled up and a dance floor is cleared. Mary Beth takes listeners to her grandparent’s dairy farm back in the 1940’s with ”Threshing Time”, a tune she co-wrote with her 85 year old father. Airing fears, worry and concern is still a part of family gatherings. The burdens are shared and then released with Gary White’s ”Long, Long Time”. Mary Beth takes the Linda Rondstadt cover and places it in a bluegrass arrangement, giving it new breath. She then leads you slowly into the wee hours of the evening (to the bedroom) with ”The Medley” and concludes with an original ditty welcoming the morning and the gift of a new day with ”Cottonwood Creek”.
