What about some Bluegrass music
« on: December 21, 2009, 04:53:35 PM »
With the increase in traffic on the bluegrass forum I have been thinking about starting a thread for people to post clips of bluegrass bands that they are listening to.  Word of mouth is how a lot of bluegrass music gets passed around.
I am really lucky to live in a area that gives me the chance to see/hear a lot of amazing music and I would love to pass on who I am listening to and I want to hear from you guys too.

Since it is Christmas I will post this clip of a show I saw a couple weeks ago.  It is the Nashville Bluegrass Band.  A group of amazing musicians that get together and play occasionally. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MF9uTKaJUHE

If others like this idea I will post more of the bands that I am really into right now.

There you go Tio,  I haven't thought about King Wilkie in a long time.  I have been wearing out their new stuff on their myspace for the last few minutes.  http://www.myspace.com/kingwilkie  
Yeah, The Stringdusters are unreal.  Next month they are playing here at the Station every Wednesday night all month.  I hope to see them a couple times.

Junior,  I will come up with some stuff for you to try.  I wasn't going to post much traditional stuff, but if you have never listened to Bluegrass you need to be introduced to it.  My original thought was to post more of the new stuff, but you need to hear the old.

OK, what to post?  Let me think.

I've got Sam Bush's latest on the player at the moment, Circles Around Me Very, Very, Very (did I say very?) Good. Stringdusters are in my top 5 for sure. Would love, and I mean love to see them live. I have also just got Bryan Sutton's latest...Almost Live Absolutely Pheee-nominal. Love 'im to death. Not sure if I can find any of that on UTUBE but as far as I'm concerned, those two alblums are on serious rotation. My first intro to bluegrass? Will the Circle Be Unbroken with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and too many more to name.  Junior, you couldn't go too far wrong with a copy of that on yer MP3 Player. Classic.

The Stringdusters are our New Years Eve act at the School next week, with Uncle Earl.

I had to choose between working that gig, or having a girlfriend.

Fortunately, I've seen them before, so that made it a little easier. Bela's coming in February. I won't miss that one.

Yeah Magoo, they're ok I guess.  Great opry video!

OK, we all agree the Stringdusters are pretty good.

The band I listen to all the time and I see as often as I can are the Steeldrivers.
I highly recommend these guys and gal. Not traditional, but the songwriting, vocals and picking is about as good as it gets...

I could have posted any of their videos.  They are all great!

Bluegrass.......crap, I'm in the wrong forum.[:I]

But, that is where Washburn seems to doom us mandolin players to live.  Anyway, it beats the crap out of being dumped in a bin with the electric guitar players (although they would kick us out--for sure, they only pretend to be nuts).

OK, I don't like or listen to bluegrass; however there are two bluegrass groups I can listen to:

1:  Old and In The Way

http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=sCpCmt0OXNc

Jerry died so the old farts had to get another b@nj0 player, Herb was perfect.



2: The Seldom Scene

http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=XwkG5ZO6lS8

Duffy, Auldridge...............they could play heavy metal great!!!


Mike, Jerry, John, Vasser, David, Herb, Peter........good times, good friends, 35+ years of good memories with some good music thrown in.

Thanks and Godspeed to those gone on.
