    Clarification on Al Osteen's recordings...

    Through a misunderstanding on my part, I did not get clearance from Al's widow to accept donations directly.

    I have reflected the change on the web page for now.

    I'll give you and update as soon as possible.

    My apologies for any confusion and inconvenience.

    Hi Folks,

    Thankfully, Al Osteen's widow Rebecca has confirmed that, "donations are always welcomed."

    So I'm adding her address back on the web page http://frobbi.org/alosteen.html

    Rebecca Osteen
    790 N. Glassy Mt. Rd.
    Landrum, SC 29356

    Big thanks to Matteo over on BanjoHangout for correcting the dates and performer information on what we'd called Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys Bean Blossom 1957, which turns out to be from 1954 and 1958.

    The new web page is http://frobbi.org/audio/hamilton/Monroe54-58.html

    Hopefully everything is corrected now.

    In all my years on the internet, I still get a kick out of the worldwide interaction.
    I get a recording sent to me from Texas to here in New York, and get feedback from Italy.
    What great technology and what a great bluegrass community!

    I've posted several Grey Fox 2012 videos recently.

    The best way to keep track is to subscribe to the Grey Fox YouTube channel...

    Here's a silly fun video I took at Grey Fox early in the week.
    I was wearing a Contour "headcam" while my Thirsty Lizards buddies were setting up camp.

    I've added a new "category" of videos, now that I've volunteered at Grey Fox's sister event,
    the Rhythm & Roots Festival, held every Labor Day weekend in Rhode Island.

    I hope to be posting a new video about once a week. To see what's available and get updates, you can subscribe to my
    Rhythm & Roots Playlist.

    To get a feel for the festival, check out my "Experience" video.

    Last weekend Lonesome River Band gave a fantastic concert, presented by my Hudson Valley Bluegrass Association.
    Sammy Shelor was so gracious to allow me to record the entire concert and post it on the HVBA's YouTube channel!

    Set 1 is ready, with Set 2 hopefully in a few days. You can find them here...

    Recently, the Hudson Valley Bluegrass Association presented the Lonesome River Band.

    The show was fantastic, to say the least. But on top of that, Sammy Shelor graciously allowed me to record and post the entire show!

    Here it is for your enjoyment...

    Set 1

    Set 2

    Note, as Sammy mentions during the show, Brandon Rickman had another schedule commitment for the weekend and Ashby Frank sat in for him.

    Olaf, your comment is exactly what makes the effort worthwhile. I'm always so happy to be able to share what I have with the folks that understand and appreciate our music.

    I'm thrilled to announce my biggest friend's collection yet, the Ivor Trueman Collection.

    Just a couple of weeks ago, Ivor contacted me from England offering a DVD of MP3s he'd
    downloaded from a website where they no longer exist.

    On Christmas Eve the DVD arrived at the post office and I went to work assembling over
    800 individual song MP3s (!) and building 50 web pages. I haven't even had time to listen
    to many of the songs.

    I'm still in the process of cleaning up everything and have had help from Ivor and a handful
    of other friends. I had wanted to wait a few more days to announce, but when I realized there are
    some tracks with Mike Auldridge (see links below), I thought I'd do it now in Mike's tribute.

    Here's some idea of the content of this collection...

    - Dates ranging from 1954 to 1976

    - Artists include...
    Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, Jimmy Martin, the Osborne Brothers, Don Reno,
    Red Smiley, Clyde Moody, Mac Wiseman, the Stanley Brothers, Buzz Busby,
    Red Allen, Bill Emerson, the Country Gentlemen, Norman Blake, Tut Taylor,
    Roy Acuff, Al Wood, the Bluegrass Alliance, the Bluegrass Buddies,
    Blackwell/Collins, Bluegrass 45, JD Crowe, the Lewis Family,
    Del McCoury, Roy McMillan, New Deal String Band, Shenandoah Valley Cut-Ups,
    Virginia Cut-Ups, Frank Wakefield, Cliff Waldron, Wilson Brothers

    - Venues such as...
    New River Ranch, Old Time Picking Parlor, Brown County Jamboree,
    Fincastle 1965, Camp Springs 1971 (over 25 artists!)

    Here's the collection... http://frobbi.org/truemancollection.html

    Mike Auldridge Tribute

    Here are two sets of Mike with Cliff Waldron...

    Now that I've added a Google Custom Search (which is still not complete),
    from my Ken Landreth Collection, I just found a whole bunch of sets with Mike...

    -------------------

    My sincere thanks to Ivor for taking the time to gather these historic recordings and
    make them available to me so we can share them with all of you.

    Happy New Year!
    Fred

    Another fantastic collection! Thanks for this site, it's turning into one of the best bluegrass resources on the net. Anyone who's a bg fan and hasn't checked this site out is really missing out. I just listened to Monroe and Norman Blake doing a few songs as a duo and sitting in with The Country Gentlemen. Amazing!

    There's a new addition to my James Stiltner Collection...

    Jimmy Martin, Brewgrass Festival, Asheville, NC, October 30, 2004, apparently his last concert ever.

    James is a member of The Johnny Jackson Band. http://frobbi.org/audio/jamess/JohnnyJackson06.html
    You can find him on...

    I now have a free "Google Custom Search" for my recordings. It still has growing pains but seems to be working pretty well.
    There are still some things I have to do to make it complete.

    Please give it a try. Search for festival names, people names, band names, etc.
    Short text seems to work better, e.g. Crowe, Monroe, Berkshire.

    I'd appreciate any feedback.

    As noted, since the search is free, Google throws an ad into the results; but it's not bad, and an obvious different color.

    http://frobbi.org/pickingsearch.html

    There's also a link to it on my main Picking Page: http://frobbi.org/picking.html
