I’ve seen Steve Earle, Robert Earl Keen, and The Lumineers all playing free instore concerts this year.

Last time I caught the Knitters, there was great interaction between John Doe and Dave Alvin on guitars.

Enjoy.

Nice lineup, and the festival is well named.

It is not a bluegrass festival, for sure. Of the “founding fathers” segment, only Earl Scruggs would carry a “bluegrass father” label (and of course Bill Monroe, Doc Watson was vehement he was “not a bluegrass artist”, but a traditional plus one. Earl and Doc both passed away this year. Warren Hellman underwrote the festival until his death in ‘11.

Warren Hellman has set up a foundation to continue funding it for at least 15 more years.

Also.. if you know of any Bluegrass ping lists, please tell them to put me on...

That 9yo kid is a natural.. mid brother is good, but not as good.. worried about the oldest though :p .. (I believe he is 15, or was at the time it was recorded)..

My pop said he learned guitar when he was about 12... banjo on Navy ships between points... I have a B/W photo somewhere around here of my pop playing banjo on a ship (not sure which) when he was about 17-18..

There might be a C&W ping list. Maybe I’ll start an Americana Music ping list.

Incidentally, Chris Thile, mandolinist who plays with the Punch Brothers (I don’t see them on the schedule) has just won the MacArthur ‘Genius’ Grant.

When the lineup was announced I went to youtube and checked out videos of all the bands I have never heard of. The band that most impressed me was Pickwick.

Other than that, I will try to see Kieran Kane, Kevin Welch & Fats Kaplin (love their music), Buddy Miller (always worth seeing), Giant Sand (longtime favorite of mine), The Time Jumpers, and Dwight Yoakum, whose music I am not too familiar with.

If I wasn’t so buy taking care of “World of Warcraft” websites, I would try to make a ping list :p

The history and music.. and the History OF music (culture) is most important to me..

BUT, I put myself in a bad spport about 4 years ago... have about 650 people following me on the ‘Imaginary’ side.... can’t just up and quit :/

Wow! That line up is stupendous! Lucero! Jerry Douglas! Jon Langford! RE Keen, Patty Griffin, The Chieftains, Steve Earle, Justin Townes Earl, Dirty Three! Cowboy Junkies, Heartless Bastards, Son Volt, Patti Smith! Dwight Yoakam!

Unfortunatly, I'm on the wrong coast. Do not miss Dirty Three, if you don't know about them.

Planning to attend all three days.

Try to catch Amanda Shaw on Sunday. Ten years ago, I used to watch her play in New Orleans. She was too young then to order anything from the bar.

Wow.. actually, on YouTube, it brought up some Honky-Tonk may dad used to play to me when I was a kid (2-8yo) that I had forgotten...

not what I was looking for, but definitely worth my time (happy/sad tears)..

A great list of preformers. What is the attendance that can be expected to attend, day or total. This should be a fun event but I suspect it would be tiring also. Have fun and thanks for sharing the info.

Well, since there is no cover charge it is very crowded. There are no camp sites at the facility either. Saturdays and Sundays tend to draw between as much as 250,000 each day! But since it is free you don't have to wait in line to gain admittance. Just drag your body to the park.

It gets VERY crowded late in the afternoon. I shy away from the main stages later in the day, cuz, well, you can't really get close to the stage, anyway.

Danny Barnes may not be the most technically accomplished banjo player, but he is my favorite.

I used to see Danny Barnes in the Bad Livers every couple of months for a few years. Eventually the music he played and then he moved away from the area.

I still see Mark Rubin now and then (every couple of years he pops up).

I agree that Barnes’ more recent stuff is not his best, but is still quite entertaining.

This is what the thread I made was about (Bluegrass -> Redgrass)

This is Asian Bluegrass.. and it is not 'their version'.. it is ours taken over there ;)

紅庭 ... and if you cannot see the Chinese Characters, they say it translates to, "Red Chamber, Jaybirds" ... but I know the Japanese version( Kanji) of red.. and I don't see the Kanji for it..

Anyway.. here is REAL American Bluegrass, Asian style (with a bit of banjo and guitar thrown in ;)) ...

1 more for you to bookmark... Same kids from my post #2..

I think this is pretty much their debut 1 year before:

U2b Vid (YouTube)

When I watch that kid play the banjo, I don't know whether to laugh or cry.. also, his older brother is excellent on the fiddle.

My father passed his guitar down to me when I was about 8 (about the same age)... I could never be as gifted as this kid..

It was an Incredible weekend or great music. I saw 10 full sets.

-Pickwick
-Beachwood Sparks
-Jon Langford and the Sadies
-Dirty Three
-Buddy Miller (with guests Emmylou, Patty Griffin, Victoria Williams and Robert Plant)
-Giant Sand (yes, that was John Paul Jones playing mandolin!)
-Kieran Kane, Kevin Welch, Fats Kaplan
-Lucero
-Dwight Yoakam
-Walter Salas-Humara (the Silos)

They were all great, but Lucero was the best! They have got to be one of the best live acts around. Dirty Three was pretty amazing, too.

A singularly outstanding “scary great” mandolinist, with “spider fingers”. Someone so young one hopes he will pace himself— pure energy sometimes.

Oddly enough, as a child he started out wanting to play pro baseball (like a lot of children), then applied his energy to mandolin. Nickel Creek being the first real produced album he did (Mark Schatz produced) is exceptional. The originals (along with some classics) are really something, including Thile’s “Lighthouse”. Also recommend youtubes of Chris and Mike Marshall (a friend of mine) playing “Fisher’s Hornpipe” well rehearsed and yet— spontaneous.

Deo Vindice.
