No Bears


In Dahlonega at their 'Bear In the Tree" or "Bear In The Square" festival there were blue grass fiddlers and pickers at almost every corner and under every shade tree. Damn right enjoyable.

When i were a nipper, well 18-20, i used to drink in a folk club on an airforce base (Ironically being on a Military base it was heavily subsidised and had a lack approach to the law). Very occasionaly they would have this Blue Grass band play and they were god awful. For many years i thought Blue Grass was a musical form inveted by a tone deaf pervert. It wasn't until several years ago that i heard some other stuff (can't recall what) and it was actually quite good.

Gerbil,
That is about how I used to feel - it was God Awful, sometimes too twangy, sometimes just bad.
But most of the time it is good. I am building up a good CD collection of bluegrass. But I like almost all improvisational msuic.

Steve,
Tony Rice eh?
I'll keep an eye out for him.
I think by now we probably have a hundred or so bluegrass CDs and I think for the most part, if not totally, they were done by amatures; by people who have not quit their day job and play their music when they can get off work, if their boss will let them.
