Following a breezy opening guitar segment from Dickinson, Helm dives head-first into the song’s verse before harmonizing with Mae on the chorus.Dickinson recently shared his thoughts on the new project with Relix. He explains,Each singer brought a handful of songs to the table. Sometimes it was an old tune they wanted to reinterpret or something new they’d written that felt right for the cast of characters at hand, but no matter the track, all of our colors ended up mixing together on a communal palette.Watch Luther Dickinson and Sisters of the Strawberry Moon’s new video for “Like A Songbird That Has Fallen” below:Luther Dickinson and Sisters of the Strawberry Moon – “Like A Songbird That Has Fallen”[Video: New West Records]Luther Dickinson and Sisters of the Strawberry Moon will perform at various City Winery locations throughout the month of March.

first_img Share Food & DiningLifestyle 4 super foods that battle arthritis pain by: Familyshare.com – February 7, 2015 Sharing is caring! 83 Views   no discussions Sharecenter_img Tweet Share “You are what you eat,” has been a motto from an early age. Now that you’ve aged, it’s time to put those words into action. According to Everyday Health, about 46 million adults in the United States, about one in five Americans, have been diagnosed with some form of arthritis. This number continues to rise and is expected to jump dramatically in the coming years. While there is no cure for arthritis, there are certain measures you can take, namely preventive foods, to help combat the chronic sickness. Take a look at the list below, and see what you need to add to your diet to help ease some of arthritic pain.Omega-3 fatty acidsThere are so many ways to introduce these essential fatty acids into your system that will help combat arthritis and alleviate some inflammation. Charles Serhan, Ph.D., director of the Center for Experimental Therapeutics and Reperfusion Injury at Harvard Medical School, found that omega-3s convert into compounds that aid in bringing the inflammatory response in the human body to an end. There is no certainty to how much omega-3 is required, but if you’re not keen on adding some fish to your diet, be sure to get some omega-3 fatty acid supplements.BroccoliIt’s time to go a little greener. Several lab studies have found that sulforaphane, a compound in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, may block enzymes linked to joint destruction and inhibit inflammation. Be adventurous with this vegetable. Make it a fun kitchen project to find the most delicious ways to cook this green giant of a vegetable.Spice it upSeasonings go beyond that extra little flavoring. It’s been shown that ginger and turmeric possess anti-inflammatory properties. Experiment a little. You can make turmeric tea as part of your nightly routine.StrawberriesTo round off a few foods to help ease arthritis pain, here is one for that sweet tooth. Not only is this delicious fruit perfect for a summer day, it can help lower blood levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), a signal of inflammation in the body, which is helpful for arthritis pain.So the next time you find yourself at the grocery store or out to dinner, consider the long-term effects of the foods you consume. Fill your plate or basket with things that can help you overcome chronic pains, like arthritis, that are also delicious. Don’t be afraid to try new things, you never know how much it could help you.last_img read more
