    Hello, I'll be spending some time in Roanoke (up from North Carolina) this summer for work. Anyone from the cafe live there? Is there a jam or an event you'd recommend checking out? I play upright...
  3. Re: Norman Blake-Original Underground Music from the Mysterious S

    Hi Mike, I too love those recordings. Do you know Carl Jones that plays on the record? He's a great guy and I wonder if he'd be interested. I saw him just last weekend at a gig. You should be able to...

    Re: Prairie Home Companion reviews

    Ok, it's clear you don't like the show. If PHC is hackneyed then the same could be said for the classic bluegrass that many of us study and love. But calling Garrison lazy is way off. Maybe you think...

    Re: Some very fine Nancy Blake mandolin

    Very nice!

    Definitely get Natasha's Waltz, which as I understand was first released as "Original Underground Music from the Mysterious South". Why wouldn't that title be a big seller?!

    Re: Sierra Hull's official Black River Video

    I enjoyed that, thanks. A couple of questions:

    --Is that Sierra harmonizing with herself via overdub?
