Earlier this month, KEXP returned to the magical space of the Bunny Glade during Pickathon 2014 to capture intimate acoustic sessions in this wooded oasis. Each of the 17 exclusive performances were special, but one of the most endearing moments for sure took place during Valerie June's set when a very young and enthusiastic listener couldn't help but hear the call of "Raindance" and broke away from her mother to listen more closely. A sweet moment for sure, and each of the stunning Tennessee native's songs touch all of our hearts in their own way. Watch this short session recorded live at Pickathon and then hear Valerie June again on Monday, September 1, at 12PM, live from the Bumbershoot Music Lounge. You'll be tempted to do a rain dance of your own!
