A love of music has been a part of the Land Rover life. Driving a classic Land Rover - none of which came with radios - gives you ample opportunity to sample all the musical tracks of your life.
The early lure of R&B hits (the Memphis and Muscle Shoals sounds) Broadway musicals, rock pabulum, folk music, and humor, led to UVM theater productions, the UVM Chorale Union, Lyric Theatre (Burlington, VT) musicals, and eventually, performing here on Vinalhaven.
Music centers and focuses our senses. It's an early basis for teaching language, and people with musical skills learn language - native or foreign - faster than those whose musical skills have been ignored. Besides, singing loudly while driving a Land Rover helps battle off all the noises made by the engine and drivetrain.
"The Land Rover is not a vehicle, it's a way of life."
