Their Finally on here! Thanks to Ken who handled the technical work.. Five new tunes from our group on the "porch:" have been added here on the homepage..!
All these tunes except for a couple were recorded just as we played them at a picking on the porch.. Someone would holler out play "this" and we would take off !! So there is absolutely nothing formal about these recordings.. they are complete just as they were played with the coments, mistakes whoops, me turning knobs in the middle of breaks,(even my own!)
With the interest and topic on Dobro.. I included a couple of songs by Ken, Maidens prayer and Red haired boy.. as examples of Dobro playing and sound, techniques.. Sorry, no banjo here but someone had to play the Guitar!!
Featuring My wife Judy who sings, plays bass and is the real article pictured as a bluegrass muscian.. One of seven sisters, She was born and raised in the hills about 30 miles cross country from the Bill Monroe Homeplace, did the church singing bit with her family as she grew up,.. notice the voice and accents.. nothing fake here!!
James Burba plays mandolin... completely self taught, with his own tuning and his own style...can play virtually any type music on the mandolin on the fly.. A natural talent! These contain the very first times he came out of the "holler" at Priceville and was recorded!
Josh... James's Grandson.. "the kid" was fifteen when these were made.. His first time being recorded singing, playing rythym guitar..
Don Campell.. Outstanding bass player ..Plays bass, when Judy isn't singing.. Very knowledgable muscian, plays guitar and banjo..Check out his Mule song..
Listen and enjoy!! We're just ganged up having a good time, nothing pro or serious here..
Let us know what you think!!! And as always everyone is invited to join us on the "porch" !!!
