    In the East Tennessee town where I now work, there has been a long standing tradition of calling almost everything the something or other. We have a lot of industry and most of the plants were...

    Re: Eastman Violins for Fiddles?

    I suggest you try Gianna Violins. I believe you can find them via their website. Not so sure about the location these days. Steve Perry owns the company and is a member here. I called him up and he...

    I too, tried the mandolin to fiddle changeover. As is my custom I barged ahead thinking I could teach myself. I tried this for 7 or 8 years, off and on. The end result is I learned a surprising...

    Re: Get Your 4 Year Degree in Bluegrass

    Re: Get Your 4 Year Degree in Bluegrass

    It is certainly my understanding that Sierra went to Berklee to pursue a career in music (I think that's all they do there). She had a scholarship. Seems to have worked out nicely. I do not know why...

    Re: R.I.P. Tom Petty

    Bertram,

    I have a problem averting my eyes but for a different reason. You say there's a bass player in that video? I heard them play this a couple of years ago in Asheville, NC, and loved it. I...

    Re: Sierra Hull IBMA

    Pretty clearly the IBMA thinks Sierra is sufficiently "bluegrass." She co-hosted the show and also had a song, Weighted Mind," nominated. I guess we can argue about whether it has to have been in...

    I saw the show a couple of weeks ago in Asheville, NC, and it was great. There is a nice variety of music, and all three musicians are incredibly talented. I thought Sierra handled the stage aspect...

    I have a similar problem. I have a trigger finger on my left hand. I had surgery on it once, and the doc says no more surgery. If I overdo it with my fretting hand, which is easy to do, if locks...
