What about some Bluegrass music

Good vids guys.

Here is something a little different.
I like the idea of Tim May playing mandocello instead of guitar. Gives it a real folkie mountain sound.

A friend just sent me a dvd/cd of the Lovell Sisters Live in Philli Folk festival. Awesome really and those girls are nice to look at too. But what really got me was Jake Stargel and his flatpicking....damn if you don't know him check him out! he was 17 at the time of the recording(2007) making him about 20 now.....damn.

How about a little old time?

This is a gentleman from Northwest Missouri that until his death in 1986, I had the privilege to know and play many a tune with for over twenty years.

His name is Cyril Stinnet and was known as one of the best fiddlers to ever come along.

Kenny Baker was once asked who was the best fiddler. He replied, I don't know, but I don't know anybody that can beat that old man up in Northwest Missouri.

Cyril played a fiddle strung right handed, left handed. This style is called crossing the bar.
 
I just discovered that another excellent fiddler I've play with for forty five years, who is also a legend in the fiddle world and also crosses the bar, had posted these videos on youtub and thought I would share.

I think this will trip the triggers of all you bluegrass fans:

http://www.amazon.com/Rounder-Records-40th-Anniversary-Concert/dp/B0033G9NME/ref=amb_link_94909822_4?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=right-1&pf_rd_r=1M69R9VRP413H3XC43ZQ&pf_rd_t=4401&pf_rd_p=395471022&pf_rd_i=B000APVFJ0

Looks like it will be a great one to have.[:)]

Greg, its funny that you posted that.  I was going to post something about it.  It was in the paper today that it will start to air on PBS in March.  So, if you check your local PBS stations you might get to see it. Good stuff!!

hey Merlin....the 28th in Fremantle would be my closest place to see them. However, Fremantle is a 5 hour drive north of where I live. On a Sunday, making it back to work for monday would be somewhat prohibitive....having said that, it has been done before. The Blues and Roots Festival is a great occasion too. Probably a whole lot of other great players on the bill . I will check it out.The problem with  those  festivals, nobody usually plays more that 40 minutes. Neil Young played for an 80 minutes (He played like 3 hours at his theatre gigs). Not near long enough.....but like I said.....ya never know. Thanks for the heads up!

wow, I just checked the festival line up.  Its a good one.  It seems odd to have a one day show on a Sunday.  It is too bad your far away.  I just thought I would give you a heads up just in case you were close.

Well this isn't bluegrass but a couple of week ago I was invited to join in a jam at a buck skinner rendezvous near my home. Celtic and old time was all that was played, no bluegrass. I thought I would share a couple videos.

Be sure to check out the second video.

OK, just got the new Steeldrivers album that came out today.  I have not looked forward to a album release like this in a long time.  It is Great!  I highly recommend getting it even if you don't like bluegrass.  they are so much more than a bluegrass band. they should have their own genre.  Too bad the lead singer has recently left the band, but he made this gift before he left.

go here to preview it.  http://www.amazon.com/Reckless-SteelDrivers/dp/B003VZ8IAU I promise if you like music you will not be disappointed in this album.

glad you like it magoo, i am loving it!
their song writing is amazing, not to mention Chris's vocals.
the song where rainbows never die is about as good as it gets for me.
