    Re: Eastman MD815 vs. MD815v

    I'd guess you already have it, but if not, Skaggs and Rice may be the finest bluegrass duets ever recorded. Ricky's phrasing, timing, tone, everything, is stellar. And then there's Tony...

    Hey Adam, it was well-attended but it did seem lighter than previous years. But still some really hot bluegrass, oldtime, swing, and cajun jams going well in to the early morning hours.
