Genre: Bluegrass / Playing Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)

I got some suggestions from the other members of The Grass Station about the first mix I put online, so I changed it a little. It is not too different, but I might as well put up the best sounding version (for your listening pleasure). Again, not much different, so sorry for re-posting it (in case you don't hear the differences or if you like the old mix better). I should again list the band personnel, as that info got deleted when I deleted the previous mix: Jered Widman plays guitar, sings lead vocal, and tenor vocal on the chorus. Jeff Smith is on mandolin and sings lead on the chorus. Josh Adkins plays bass and sings baritone on the chorus. Ellie Hakanson plays the fiddle (she is a part-time member of the band, due to her commitment to playing with other bands).

I enjoyed that. Hope you get some gigs.

Thanks for the nice words Jeff. The only problem about getting festival gigs is that most of them are back east, and being from Oregon makes the travel situation a little difficult. That's because festival promoters aren't too eager to come up with enough funds to pay for travel, lodging, etc. for bands that don't have an already large following, but who knows, maybe we'll get some gigs in different parts of the country.
