Nerd Music Goes Bluegrass!

I've always wanted to watch Game of Thrones, but there's only so many hours in a day, you know? So I thought I'd get the book. Well, I read, a LOT, but when Mr. Martin introduced the tenth character in the first chapter, I had to put it down. Maybe I'll try again when the GoT fandom is not so fierce and everyone is telling me I must love it. Or else. I want to love it. Really.
The snippets of commercials I've seen sure do look intriguing, and that music....I do love that!

So I was over the moon when I found out there was a bluegrass band that's done a cover of the Game of Thrones theme music. Being a lover of bluegrass, I clicked over and immediately fell in love.

Listen, and tell me what you think!

And I thought I was the only person left who hadn't seen or read it. I understand the violence is intense so it will be reading for my wimpy self. Eventually...

I read the first one years ago; long before it became popular... the whole storyline involving Daenerys, the 13 year old 'Dragon' princess, put me off it entirely. Having her wedding night (she was 13 in the book) gleefully and graphically related was a bit much for me.
