Title: What about some Bluegrass music
Post by: Merlin 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.

Post by: Merlin on December 22, 2009, 08:23:17 PM
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...

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.



That's about as grassy as my blues gets.[:I]
Title: What about some Bluegrass music
Post by: Merlin on December 24, 2009, 01:14:13 AM
Now thats what I am talking about Greg.  What do you mean you don't like bluegrass?  You just threw out some Seldom Scene on us.  That is good stuff!  John Duffey was the man! RIP  This is one of my favorites from the scene http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nk9vhhGyRyo&feature=related

Speaking of Duffey I need to post some Country Gentlemen.

I like where this thread is going.

Greg, I'm not a big Bluegrass fan either, but I sure did like the 2 selections that you picked. In fact, I listened to each several times over. I got a Mandolin some time ago and am trying to get the hang of it. I wanted to learn and play Celtic pieces. But I was really taken with the groups you selected. Most bluegrass I'm familiar with sounds like somebody wailing away, LOL. I'm glad to see and hear there is another side to Bluegrass.

So, it's New years eve.  I will be ringing in the new year with The Old Crow Medicine show band at the Ryman auditorium here in Nashville.  Not a bad place to be to say goodbye to '09.

HEY JUNIOR, you might like 'em, check these guys out.
This is their most popular song... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YH0CnjXqCLE

but make sure to watch this one.  This video almost captures the energy in the building during their show. Its amazing!!!

Banjos----[xx(]

I don't listen to bluegrass.  I do have a few friends that are pretty good at it.

Here's Zane:

OK----So, there's a banjo.  What's a poor boy to do when he's your dad and you're playing in his theatre?

If there's a banjo laying aroung the best that you can hope for is that Raymond Fairchild picks it up.[;)]
Title: What about some Bluegrass music
Post by: svgustin on January 05, 2010, 08:46:06 PM
Well, greg, I do agree with you some. I have a whole bunch of banjo player jokes too. Although you can play bluegrass without a banjo....(oh my god....I'm defending banjos! What's got into me?)......you kinda need 'em sometimes to get that special sound.....I don't know really....
now, nobody put their paw up when I mentioned Bryan Sutton. so here is clip showing a little something he can do. If I could only be reborn.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UG9Az8fOkeg
I play Lonesome Fiddle Blues with my buddy the banjo player. Don't quite sound like that. [:p]

Hi Ryan (this sounds like an AA meeting) you don't have to like redgrass or bluegrass music. But if it ever gets under your skin and into your blood, let me know. There is no cure I'm afraid. Just be glad you are not my kid. They have to put up with my music all the time.porr darlings. I do listen to theirs though and I like most of it.....

Junior, I was going to ask what kind of music do you like?  I see you said classic rock.
I am not trying to force bluegrass, but the thing is that there is so much under the umbrella of bluegrass you have  Americana, old time string band music, jam grass, new grass, a lot of nontraditional stuff.  I was in your shoes a few years ago.  I only listened to old stuff and a was searching for new music that I thought had great songs, musicians and vocals and I found it under the umbrella of bluegrass.  It is the only new stuff I can stand.

I was listening to something today you might like. Do you like Jack White from the White stripes?

That's better Greg! Merlin, some reason I couldn't get access to that video you posted. I'll try a different way. Anyway Ryan, my approach is to give it all a chance. I even find myself liking some hiphop, believe it or not.....but there is some very good stuff out there in all genres. And most have something going for them. I get a little fed up with all the sampling. Don't have a lot of time for that.

There was a poster named 1 cal that I have not seen post in awhile, but he loved this video when I posted it a long time ago.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKvXQGotOSQ
The reason I post that is because today this album(pic below) came out and I have wore it out.  I live in the birthplace of the restaurant Cracker Barrel and my mom works at the home office and I was hooked up with the first one they sold this morning.  I highly recommend picking one up if you ever eat there.  I love the Statler brothers and Dailey & Vincent so this is awesome for me.

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.

Hey svgustin,  I see you are in Australia.  My favorite current band Old Crow Medicine Show is headed down your way this month.  They put on a great live show.  If you get a chance to see them I highly recommend it.

Post by: svgustin on March 04, 2010, 02:23:53 AM
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!

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.

cheers Merlin. I've been waiting for a review. And if RYAN  likes it (sorta), I'm gettin' it.
It's been awhile. Just busy living fellas. Too much to think about, much less to write about. My baby daughter is graduating from high school in a few weeks. How'd that happen?
I have been totally immersed in this album http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PYKmvx-Lms&feature=related
  for the last month or so. Songwriting doesn't get much better than this, my dream band would sound something like this, with a little banjo, fiddle and dobro thrown in for good measure. the mandolin on this album is just perfect.
Anybody know what type of mando is being played? The album i got has no information. it has a lower regester than mine. Mandocello?

Junior, good music knows no boundaries.
 
svgustin, yeah John Hiatt is good stuff!
be careful with that new steeldrivers album.  I have got some strange looks singing to this song in the car... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZrKTz8iUwU  
song for song there will not be a better album released this year in any genre, too bad the music industry(awards) just recognize the music teenage girls listen too.

oh yeah, congrats on getting your daughter this far.  I can not imagine raising a teenage girl.

ok,
a couple weeks ago I had one of the best music nights ever.
i saw Mumford and Sons.
is there any Mumford and Sons fans out there?  if you don't know them check them out.  they are not really bluegrass they are more acoustic rock(if that is a genre) give a listen.. warning for a dirty word if others are listening... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLJf9qJHR3E

here is a song from the concert. whats great about Nashville is that you never know who will show up on stage.  My favorite live band Old Crow Medicine show and Bluegrass group Cadillac sky joined in for a few songs.  It was awesome. who says acoustic or bluegrass don't rock? don't tell this crowd... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3-ksAHSkBo thats right 4 banjos and 2 mandolins

Ok, now to the really amazing part.  Rumor got out that after the show they were playing at my favorite place in the world the Station Inn.  we hurried over there and amazingly got in.  If you only knew how small of a place this is, it was great fun late late into the night. I am getting too old for this stuff. here is a clip of the night... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4tjXZv4tA0M
Mumford and sons, Old Crow medicine show, Cadillac Sky and yes Dierks Bentley(his new bluegrass album is not bad) on stage together at the Station Inn from about midnight to 3 in the morning.

Mumford and Sons and The Avett brothers will be performing tonight on the Grammys with Bob Dylan.  They are not exactly bluegrass they are more americana folk alternative bluegrass(I dont really know what genre), but I really like em.  I am sure it will be the only thing worth watching so i think i will DVR it and fast forward through the other crap.
