We had some exciting musical news in the family recently. For many years my big brother Boe has been writing songs as a hobby and he's made a lot of friends and connections along the way. Well, one thing led to another and a couple of weeks ago he went to Nashville and signed a contract with bluegrass publisher Billy Blue Records for a song he wrote called Widow's Bridge. They'll be recording a demo soon and then start shopping it around to bands. No guarantees in the music business, of course, but he's pretty excited about it and I'm real happy for my big brother. So drop your lists, and if you have a favorite bluegrass tune to share, holler it out. I'm real partial to John Hartford's take on this classic, myself.
Too many of these to write up.
People are just crazy for that ol' time music these days.
A very good friend of mine from my time in Prauge is the fella on the right in the flatcap and guitar. He's currently in one of, if not the, biggest bluegrass bands in South Korea.
Unfortunately, this is the best quality video on youtube. If you like what you heard, here's their Facebook page
i'm going to try as hard as i can to avoid videos from the audience, but this one was hard to pass up.
kinda clips out a little in the middle. sorry about that.
Welcome back from Austin, y'all. I hope you enjoyed yourself at SxSW this year, and now for something different.
If you have any interest in bluegrass music and like visiting San Francisco I recommend seeing the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. Robyn and John Paul playing in the sun at Golden Gate Park, 2012.
I don't remember which of you it is, but I know we've got some Duluth expats or natives or some-such around here. Well I'm neither, but I am a fan of the city. Here's a group from there.
Plus, it's another MN venue...perhaps the MN venue?
