I am thrilled to present to you all, a 5 part video series in which Butch Robins tells us all about the history of Blue Grass Music. Butch did a fantastic job at it and traces the music from the bare beginnings to today. He uses first person and second person accounts throughout, plays banjo for us, gives us music to trace the evolution and generally blows my mind with the detail and passion he showed. This is Butch at his finest..... honest, accurate, geniune and comfortable. Please have a look-

I haven't watched the whole thing yet, but from what I've seen, this series is fantastic! Thank you for making this part of the historical record. Great job!

We all worked very hard on this, both in making sure the information quality was very high and the production was top notch (at least as far as we could we did the very best production possible). AND, this is not the only video we did/are doing. At the moment there is a Sammy Shelor one and a Jens Kruger one sitting on my hard drive. Sammy is about ready to release too.

I'm enjoying hearing Butch share his experiences and insight. It is a video, however, with not much to look at, so I couldn't help but notice he is always wearing a tuxedo (I know it was taped on different days). In #4 there is a top hat on the bench, and it has two big holes in it! What's up with all this? Also I am wondering who's books are on the shelf? Is Butch reading Buckminster Fuller? I had to ask. In fact I joined banjo hangout so I could ask!

Thanks for watching! Three hat is one Butch wears sometimes....the unknown banjo player he calls out I think.kind of a joke. And those books beinbehind join Are definitely his, he reads a lot. He is a very very smart guy and very well read.

Thanks Bud. I'll read some Bucky Fuller, listen to more Bill Monroe, and maybe my banjo playing will improve!
