Court Yard Hounds
Not that many years ago, Emily Robison and Martie Maguire filled the Bradley as two thirds of the Dixie Chicks. But the Chicks have been on a long vacation, and to fill the time, Robison and Maguire started another group they call Court Yard Hounds.
Wednesday night at the Uline Warehouse, the Hounds drew about enough people for a respectable family picnic. At the scheduled 10 p.m. start time, there were four people in the third row.

You reap what you so.
You reap what you sow.
Gosh, that’s a shame. I think Spinal Tap had more than that at their last gig.
“What goes around comes around”.
Some might try to compare Paula Deen, but despite all of her problems, sales of her cookbook have gone through the roof.
Both the sisters are classically-trained musicians. Emily actually rescued the banjo from its "Deliverance" days and made it a respectable instrument.
Back in the good old days, before Natalie, there was nothing sweeter than the Dixie Chicks 3 to 4 part harmonies.
Bela Fleck rescued the banjo from that fate.
Paula Deen didn’t attack her fanbase like the Dixie Ijits did.
One of the Dixie Chicks (Mel B) is working as a judge on America’s got Talent (we saw her during a taping a month ago in Hollywood).
It’s still early in the process. It’s possible that some, if not many of those who are continuing to support her will quietly walk away from her in the coming months. People are often hesitant to admit that they were wrong.
Bela Fleck was not heard by all of country music.
That's an excellent point.
Nor were the Dixie Chicks.
Gotta love the Flecktones...although I liked Bella much more when he was a member of New Grass Revival...my all-time favorite contemporary bluegrass band. I have seen them in concert a bunch of times...can’t believe the range John Cowan has.
One of the best banjo players was Wendy Holcombe of AL. She died way too young. She was very young when she started playing. I started thinking about her last year but could not remember her name. I found her name recently on a site about banjo players from the state.
Hmmm, what is the word for a female hound. Let me think.
I’m with you on New Grass Revival.
She sure cost them.
Ive seen Edgar before.
He is amazing.
You sure about that?
Pretty sure...according to the Wiki page for the show: " February 20, 2013, it was announced that former Spice Girls member Melanie Brown (aka "Mel B") would replace Sharon Osbourne as the third judge."
I've got pics of her (and Howard Stern and the other judges at the show's taping). My friend's daughter is the head wardrobe person for that show (and for others, Sharon Osbourne, Nick Canon, etc.)... so yea, I'm fairly sure.
have no clue how that pic appeared.
Maybe they should stage a “come back” at remote Indian casinos in South Dakota. However they may have to protect the stage with chicken netting to catch the bottles being thrown.
“no clue how that pic appeared’
If you hot link to a photo on another site, they don’t like it, and sometimes automatically substitute a pic of their own choosing.
The hot one and the cross-eyed one got rid of the fat one and they still can’t get get their mojo back.
One of the Dixie Chicks (Natalie Maines?) claimed that her First Amendment rights were violated when radio stations stopped playing her songs. Will these two claim that their First Amendment rights were violated because so few people attended their show?
Some websites try to discourage image hotlinking by redirecting to a different URL or by switching images at a particular URL. Sometimes you can catch the image change by previewing the post, but often it won't show up until the post appears. After that, unless the new image is offensive enough to report to a moderator, you're stuck with it.
So Mel B was in the Spice Girls and the Dixie Chicks?
Slim Whitman is going to draw a lot better than the ex Dixie Chicks at his Saturday morning appearance in Middleburg. Better music there. as well.
Bela did a documentary where he went to Africa to trace the origins of the banjo. Didn’t like all of it, but the one scene where the Ugandan guys laid a bunch of boards across a pit and started pounding on them was absoulutely amazing. Could not believe the sound. It was called “Throw Down your Heart” and that one cut is on youtube somewhere. Worth the 5-10 minutes.
Spinal Tap is so awesome. I’m listening to Break Like The Wind now. I’ll be hosting a Spinal Tap next month.
Cactus Pete's in Jackpot, Nevada is a good source of who is one step away from obscurity. Paul Revere and the Raiders played there for several years and then, ?
Good place for the Ditsy Twits.
No. She wasn't.
I just like Space Grass dude, I aint into all the world noodling stuff LOL
Gonna have to out my bootleg San Bush Band Cds.
OK you've lost me. You said that one of the Dixie Chicks, Mel B, was a judge on a TV show.
“So Mel B was in the Spice Girls and the Dixie Chicks?”
Ah me Sammy boy. Have known him since he was a long-haired hippie youngster. Has always been an innovator on the Mandolin. He was flat out crazy and never cared who did or did not like his music. Some ole-timer bluegrass purists couldn’t stand him. He’s still my favorite Mandolin artist next to my son.
LOL...right you are. Shows my age I guess, they're all the same to me!
You hang out with cool people.
Great...Sam Bush, an all-time favorite. He brought Emmy Lou Harris’s, Hot Band up two notches when he joined.
My favorite New Grass CD is “Friday Night in America”.
Another group that is riddled with history and one of my favorites is Desert Rose Band...Chris Hillman and Herb Pederson have a fairly recent CD, At Edwards Barn, which is very well done. They do some old Byrds stuff, (is there any other kind??) that is really good.
