April 26, 2010 — © 2010 SOUPer Music. What really goes on inside the SOUP-mobile as the trio goes from show to show? Do they really like each other? Do they really have fun? Does anyone really have the brain? We hope you enjoy this first look "into the bowl." A taste of the ingredients that make Hot Soup so yummy! Sue Trainor ~ at the wheel, Jennie Avila ~ with her fingers on the buttons (secretly wishing that she'd taken the time to shower) and Christina Muir in the middle of it all.

Black Hole by Christina Muir on Youtube

© Christina Muir sings a song she wrote entitled "Black Hole" accompanying herself on mountain dulcimer. It's a song of exploration of that infinitely mysterious place inside that is both terrifying and brimming with possibility. This dulcimer, built at Folkcraft Instruments, has been altered with the addition of some frets to facilitate playing in some different keys. "Black Hole" is not yet recorded on CD but Christina's solo CD ~ "FEET FIRST" ~ of original songs, played on both guitar and mountain dulcimer, can be sampled and purchased online at CD Baby.
