    Default No Wires ! Joe Walsh w/ Molly Tuttle

    This video and performance illustrate perfectly why I'm a staunch proponent of "Acoustic" music done with acoustic instruments, no plugs.

    Some of my favorite musicians playing one of my favorite songs! Thanks for posting. Although, it might make a better argument for acoustic music if you posted a video of people playing plugged in..... just a thought
    Mandolin: Kentucky KM150
    Other instruments: way too many, and yet, not nearly enough.

    Love that rendition. And the musicians.

    Dawg don't plug in.

    I'm minded of the early Beatles performances, with one mic for the lead vocal, and one mic for the backup vocals the main advantage is that the band gets to "mix" themselves, without having to rely on a possibly inexperienced kid at the FOH desk trying to decide (for everyone in the house) how this band wants to sound.

    Nice. The main thing I was thinking during that performance was what an amazing talent John Hartford was. Is there a story behind the writing of that amazing modern classic?

    If you look up "Gentle on my Mind" on Wikipedia, you'll see John claims he wrote the song in 30 minutes after seeing the film 'Dr. Zhivago'.

    Great sound and performance. The only thing better would be to stand right in front and hear just the air molecules vibrating from the instruments.

    Unfortunately, there are too few venues to pull off quiet acoustic music with just a single or stereo pair of mics. The average weekend bluegrass band ends up playing bars and coffee shops where people aren't there to listen. The crowd din is louder than the band. People actually have to shut up and listen to make sound like that happen.

    It is an incredibly beautiful performance by two of my truly favorite musicians. I don't think you can really extrapolate from that, though, that all performances should be done just that way. We have a wide array of instruments and electronics to fit the great diversity of musical and venue needs. We really are living in a golden age for musical expression. Financially, might be a different story. But however and whatever you want to express musically, we really do have the means and know-how available to do it.

    For my listening pleasure, though, simplest is best. This is a really elegant performance. I would love to hear them perform live in a small venue.
    Purr more, hiss less.

    I see a business opportunity here. The new line of 'shut up and listen' condenser mics for live acoustic music. I'd buy at least two!
