Sensory Overload: Songs About Pie

Pie means comfort. Pie means hospitality. Tradition. Handmade. Homemade. All things good.

Emily Hilliard is a folklorist, writer, fiddler, and baker who lives in Washington, D.C., and her blog, Nothing-in-the-House, is dedicated entirely to the making and enjoyment of pie. We’re thrilled to announce that, starting Monday, Emily will be a regular columnist here on Her pie column is called “Slice of Life.” Stay tuned.

In the mean time, Sensory Overload covers two music and food (pie)-related items:

Our Favorite Pie Songs (Songs About Pie)

Including “Custard Pie Blues” by Sonny Terry

So sweet. So good.

Stay tuned for more from Emily and “Slice of Life!”
