    Re: Roanoke

    Sounds good, and I concur with Jstring that a lot of the Monroe breakdowns won't really sound like Monroe until up to speed. But they can still sound good, as you do here. An old mando fiddle and...
  2. Re: Nancy Blake Playing McMichen’s Reel + Jeff Davis on a Gibson

    Good find! Sounds excellent. And James Bryan's fiddling is so good with such a unique sound.

    Jeff Davis is fun on the mando.

    Re: Thile can't chop chords

    Part of what I like about older or more trad bluegrass mandolin is that the chop chords were often fingered chords and had actual tonality. Or they were open chords (or double stops) with some ring....
  4. Re: Concert with the legendary Ray Legere and JP Cormier!

    Ray is a great player. My buddy Hugh did a series of Covid session virtual recordings (green screens) and got Ray to play fiddle on a couple of classic Flatt and Scruggs renderings. I'm playing bass...

    "I'll Fly Away" is a great song, and great to begin with. Can be played in any key too. I learned it in D and the melody is fun there. This is a good take in D with lots of slides and drones...like a...

    Re: Amazing Nugget F5 at Carter's!

    That Nugget looks awesome. A way I sometimes think about these and similar listings is:

    Re: Eastman MD815 vs. MD815v

    I'd guess you already have it, but if not, Skaggs and Rice may be the finest bluegrass duets ever recorded. Ricky's phrasing, timing, tone, everything, is stellar. And then there's Tony...

    Hey Adam, it was well-attended but it did seem lighter than previous years. But still some really hot bluegrass, oldtime, swing, and cajun jams going well in to the early morning hours.
