Woodstock Bluegrass Jamboree, Dec 2012
The Woodstock Bluegrass Jamboree was good this month, as always. The guest band was the East Dixie Boys which until I got there I thought they might be some old friends of mine who lived around the corner on East Dixie Avenue in Marietta when I was growing up. Wrong again.
The East Dixie Boys band has a pair of brothers and the lead singer is from a family of musicians. They were very talented.
The home band, The Jot'em Boys was good as always. It occurred to be that they have a pair of brothers too, and also a pair of teachers. But one of the teachers is retiring from teaching. I think after he gets used to being retired he will come out with some unique musical experiments.
As I do, the video is not meant to be better than the live performance, it is just a quick run-down of what you missed, so maybe it will intice you to come to the jamboree sometime.
