Woodstock Bluegrass Jamboree, Nov 3, 2012

This  past Saturday night we went to the monthly Woodstock Bluegrass Jamboree held at the Woodstock Community Church. 

First the visiting band, Hickory Wind, played.  The band was led by Jerry and Helen Burke of Woodstock.  They had their granddaughter sing one song she complemented the already good group.  Helen was enjoyable to watch.  Most of the time she had a big smile on her face which said, "I am so happy to be here!  Really!"

Next the home band, so to speak, the Jot 'em Down Boys played.  And they are always good. 

Danny of the Jot'Em Boys and Jerry of the Hickory Wind had sort of a "Dueling Fiddlers" musical time.  Which was interesting.  Jerry treated his instrument like a fiddler and Danny treats his instrument like a violin.  At break, just before I overheard a person from Tennessee ask Jerry what was the differnece between a violin and a fiddler. 

This video is just bits and pieces.  I tried to make it so it would in general represent what went on that night but the first time I tried to send it to Youtube it was rejected because it was too long.  I cut about 2 or 3 songs, which equaled 5 minutes and it was accepted.
