I posted this link in another thread but this interview with Frank Wakefield deserves it's own thread. If you haven't seen Frank in person don't miss the opportunity if it arises. It is an experience. If you aren't familiar with Frank start with this video:
Required listening: all Frank's recordings with Red Allen. Startlingly original instrumentals that are just plain infectious. Of course the famous New Camptown Races (Bb) but don't forget Catnip (A), both noted out in the Tottle Book, and Green Apples (really The Gold Rush is Over). But it's the strange "modal" breaks on Deep Ellum Blues, Knocking on Your Door etc. that show why Grisman says that Frank "split the bluegrass atom". And he had the good taste to "retire" to Saratoga Springs NY. A workshop with him is an experience not to be forgotten.
