    Slim, that's a joy to see! I remember that band that year! Sad to realize that they are all dead. I miss the gentle nature of Ralph's stage presence and "All 250 lbs." of Jack Cooke.

    The application of copious amounts of adult beverages will tend to make this kind of thing happen!

    I think it's just Country folk being who they are, not sobriety related to me

    As far as the music goes Nick, you're probably right.
    But the clogging?.... I know I'd have to pretty oiled up to try that...and the defibrillator charged up and ready to go. Clear!!

    The cloggers are really good but, most (not all) that I know who clog with that’s much impact tend to be pretty well oiled. There wasn’t any clogging at my wedding but we did have a guy try to joiN in on bagpipes! There was spirited music that night to be sure.
    Maybe to really clog that well one is supposed to be just slightly loose,not oiled beyond traction.

    I agree with Nick...I doubt that well-oiled dancers could have negotiated such a small dance floor in the middle of the music-makers. Looked kinda like Bluegrass and Riverdance collaborated.

    I’m surprised no one has put up “Paddy on the Turnpike” for today, but, it’s still early.
    I was up early so FHS got me started with lighting the smoker for the smoked corned beef and the crockpot for the “simmered dinner” more traditional feast. Cooler full of Guinness, half a bottle of Jameson’s for salutations, it will be a good feast St. Patrick’s Day!

    There's a thread titled "Where Is Bluegrass Headed"...I don't know but at its core, Monroe is the tree-trunk, Flatt & Scruggs, The Stanley Brothers, Jimmy Martin, Jim & Jesse, etc. are the branches off the trunk, and as you go out further from the trunk, the more variation exists!

    I prefer the trunk, and this video perfectly exemplifies what Bluegrass is at it's core: Scotch-Irish Folk and Fiddle traditions melded with Appalaichan Blues sensibilities, further melded with African-rhythm influenced Banjo: all resulting in a HAPPY dance oriented participatory music idiom; not one to sit around and gawk at virtuosity, but to participate on all levels. This is what transpired on the pickin porch in Appalaicha after long hard work days/weeks! If you still don't get it, there's really nothing more to be said, but I do!

    Late in the evening about sundown high on the hill and above the town, Uncle Pen played fiddle, Lord how it would ring! You could hear it talk, you could hear it sing...


    Sorry for the graininess of the video, from 3rd hand sources, the audio quality is pretty good

    Gee Nick, I was all set to watch that and it’s appears to be blocked! No problem, I can wait for another pearl from you.
    Botanically speaking, maybe WSM is the root, and the trunk is the rest of the first generation developers including those you mention, and they are still strong limbs but, as in any family tree, some branches will wither, allowing others to grow.

    Limbs will be trimmed, as long as there is still healthy connection to the root we can hold out hope and faith for the new growth.
