Next year marks the 30th anniversary of the first innocence mission album. Since then, the Lancaster, Pa., band—wife/husband duo Karen and Don Peris (both play multiple instruments and sing) and bassist Mike Bitts—has released nine more LPs. The latest is Sun On The Square (Badman), which also features Peris children Anna (viola) and Drew (violin) on a couple tracks. Karen and Don will be guest editing magnetmagazine.com all week.
Don: One of my favorite pieces of recorded music is “The Morning Fog” by Kate Bush. I love the dreamy-ness and joy that breaks forth. From Kate’s beautiful voice and strange lyrics to that John Williams classical-guitar part—to me, this song is a continual delight.
