Frailin Festival Fun!

Monday, August 13, 2007

Ah, MBOTMA's 2007 fall festival is now just a memory, but what a warm one it is at that!

Aside from attending some incredible performances by Del McCoury, Laurie Lewis and the Orpheus Supertones, the festival faithful still found plenty of time to hang out in the jam tent.

Joining us in the tent again this time was perennial favorite, Deb Sorensen-Boeh, lending her voice and incredible fiddle.

Not to mention, attitude!

Be sure and listen for her "finger in the armpit" quote.

On the  crystal clear Collins, providing the booming bass runs was Lincoln Potter of Ivory Bridge.

New this session, on the fantastic Flatiron was Nealtron3000, Seth's HS buddy (their group was called Naked Folk Frenzy).

And Seth, mascarading as Woody Harrelson, drove back from Denver for the weekend festivities.  He'd left his hair out there, though.

Seth kicked off the session with I'm a Rambler.  Listen to the warm voice of that Great Lakes "Rose."  His is pretty good, too!  NOTE!  Open this (and all other) music links IN A NEW WINDOW so you can stay with this page).

Next, I kicked Lucifer's rump with Chased Old Satan.  Check out that BHO t-shirt, huh? Huh?

My Instruments:
Right now I play 2 Chuck Lee Marble Falls, both with Bill Rickard tubaphone tone rings. I love sampling other banjos, but have settled on Chuck's for their consistent performance (legendary neck sensitivity) and sound.

For 10 years I played "Old Time Gospel and Bluegrass" with a MPLS-based group called Singleton Street. We've recorded two CDs: "Wingin' It", our Gospel music and "Almost Live" our first CD.

My old-timey group is the Eelpout Stringers. These guys are great fun! Check out some of our music on my MP3 page. Other cuts also found at: www.eelpoutstringers.com

Favorite Bands/Musicians:
Got LOTs of influences. From Unca Dave Macon and Stringbean right up to several of today's performers (i.e. Dwight Diller, Mac Benford, Mark Schatz and Joe Newberry). My favorite of all time though, is "Old Wide Load"... Tommy Thompson of the Red Clay Ramblers. And someone here on the hangout that's incredible is frailblazer (Ric Hollander).

Hi. My name is Craig Evans. I'm the guy that recorded the Banjo Builder and Old-time Performer Series. Banjo Hangout friend Brian Piddington called it my "Journey of the Heart." He was right. Over 4 years and 30k miles I met a group of wonderful human beings who - through their crafts - know they're making the world a better, more joyful place. Love these guys and gals and what they do! You will too. :) Update: 3/16 - I can now say the same about 48+ Old-time Performers (second 4 Volume 12 DVD documentary series). I rediscovered the wonderful world of old timey and bluegrass music at the age of 48. Where most of us heard many of these timeless tunes in our youth, few really knew what we were listening to. Aside from feeling like dancing to the joyful melodies, even fewer of us really appreciated the history of this incredible genre. The good news is, it's never too late! Through this music, I've had the good fortune of making new friends, rediscovering my youth... and experiencing incredible joy. I'm dedicated to sharing this music with others that they may come to appreciate the gift of old timey sounds.
