Bluegrass

My uncle turned me onto acoustic music, esp. bluegrass, many years ago and this band started my luv affair with the progressive side of bluegrass. A couple of younger heavyweights playing in this band. These guys are fantastic musicians. New Grass Revival

I've been a huge fan of Bela for some time, think I have all the New Grass and Fleck Tones CD's...

I remember one time in Iowa in a small bar when Bela bumped into me when wandering about during a solo. Same night I talked to Vic Wooten for about 1/2 hour about computer graphics

Can we say tight? These bluegrass players would put a lot of cats to shame.

Bela is about as good as it gets. On bluegrass guitar this is about as good as it gets. My uncle would drag me into the Sanders theater and see him. Tony Rice. His Martin is such a sweet sounding guitar,but it is really unfair the guys with big skinny hands can bar the top E with their thumbs, not fair.



Sweet guitar sound

here's a good one

Nice Bruce. Jerry did lots of stuff with David Grisman and I really like the New Riders too with Jerry on pedal steel

Byron Berline is a big favorite of mine - I've been listening to him since the early '70's got a good bit of his stuff on vinyl...damn, another dig in the works.

Big fan of Doc Watson - have seen him both with and without Merle, his son.

Photographed Doc from the press box at the Newport Folk Festival and got some good shots - boy, it was so obvious how much Merle's tragic death pained him, it seemed to infuse the music - if you get a chance, try listening to Docabilly for something a little different from Doc - it's awesome.

Alison Krauss and Union Station has gained a lot of popularity - seeing them live a few years back just confirmed the quality of them individually and as a group for me - I'd love to see them again. Their Live album is in constant rotation on my CD in the car - it's what I listen to when I'm leaving for a night of fishing -

"There is no royal road to this heavy surf-fishing. With all the appliances for comfort experience can suggest, there is a certain amount of hard work to be done and exposure to be bourne as a part of the price of success." From "Striped Bass," Scribner's Magazine, 1881.

One of my favorite albums, another is the Oh, Brother soundtrack.
I grew up in NE Kentucky, heard a hell of a lot of Bluegrass and took it for granted then. Didn't really appreciate the craftsmanship and dedication it takes to play like that. What can I say I was young and it was a rock and roll time of life.

One of the BEST bluegrass albums, IMHO - still have that in the rotation on a regular basis.

That album is a part of the soundtrack of my life (as scary as that may seem) -

Some good friends of mine formed an RI-based bluegrass band called Buck and Wing in the middle '70's - they were excellent, played a lot of selections from that album. They also did a bluegrass version of the Beatles 'Falling' which was great.

Wow, Sherman, I've stepped into the Wayback Machine...

Got 'em a summer gig at the old Royal Hotel on the Block and they played the National, too - big hit with the locals.

Come September when the season was over they all got back on the ferry for the mainland except one. He's never left the Island and Rocket is still there to this day, as far as I know. I'd give anything to hear him rip up the mandolin again -

When my bride and I got married on the knoll overlooking the beach at Castle Hill I wanted to have them as our wedding band - but they had long since taken off for parts unknown.

Damn straight!Jane and I saw her(and the band) twice,Jerry Douglas can jam! And Krauss/Plant with T-Bone Burnett.All three were fantastic shows.

Alison Krauss by far has the most beautiful voice of any singer I've ever heard.

And this is the opinion of a fanatic Iron Maiden fan!

I can remember seeing Allison K. when she was a wee lass playing at some campground in RI. Indian ranch or something like that. I can't really remember as they may still have that get together.Knew whe was going places with her sweet voice and a hell of a fiddle player too. A great pick up adding Jerry Douglas.

Nickle Creek was a favorite of mine till they disbanded a year or so ago. The mandolin player may be the best ever.

DOC w. is a true legend. The 2 Tales of the acoustic planet are fantastic albums with many of the great modern day players.

I even got Canalman and wife to be to go with me and my wife to a bluegrass concert at the Ziterion in New Bedford a year or so ago. Tony Rice had to cancel because of a family death but it was still a great show. That was the 2nd to last concert I have been to. The last being Zappa plays Zappa with Tagger, Eddie. I got to get out more.

That may be it. A long time ago. I know there was camping involved, alcohol, and I didn't drive.

Chris's father Scott Thile played bass with the group until 2000, followed by Byron House, and Derek Jones
Mark Schatz has played bass regularly with the group since 2003
So I'd guess that is Byron House

Maybe it's Jason Newsted

good stuff Paul

Leftover Salmon who i believe is on hiatus right now is a great bang. my first introduction to bluegrassy type music. Saw em in a small theater in detroit a while back and they blew my mind. I think some of the members formed the Left Hand String Band, same style of music. Great stuff when i hit the road heading to the suds.

Everything is better on the rocks.
