Woodstock Bluegrass Jamboree March 2013
Saturday we went to the monthly Woodstock Bluegrass Jamboree. It is held the first Saturday of every month, unless otherwise noted.
This time the band SOUL MINERS was the first to take stage. Each of the four men wore a hat. I thought of the Blue Brothers, wondering if they were going to do Blues Brothers kind of stuff. They didn't.
They played good music. I thought they did Irish music the best. They are not polished performers, which will take time and work. I think they felt awkward when they were trying to tell standard standing jokes.
The hosting band "The Jot'Em Boys" came on and did good as they always do. They do some research on bluegrass music of the past and pass it along to their audience.
A record number were in attendance this month.
