Last fall I flew from NY to Arizona on a onetime bucket list adventure with a longtime buddy and
fellow Clemson grad Jim Davis in Tucson.

This 3-day festival was a major stop! I finally put together my limited slide show
(which includes my 5 videos previously posted).

As I've done before - too many times - I just "discovered" two more recordings - right under my nose - from the Towne Crier Café of Buck White & The Down Home Folks with Bob Black on banjo, one from May 1977 and one from August 1978. One was already digitized. I've now added them to the one I already had online...

Here-We-Go-Again Dept...

As has happened so many times in the past, I was rummaging through my hundreds of
audio cassettes and "discovered" a "new" one.

It's the Woodstock Mountains Revue at the Bear Mountain Festival on August 2, 1981
with Happy Traum, Artie Traum, Bill Keith, Jim Rooney, Caroline Dutton, Roly Salley,
John Herald, Larry Campbell, and Pat Alger

A lot of fun and music!

For the Hudson Valley Bluegrass Association's last concert of the season, we were thrilled to have this combination that reached musical critical mass with a Berklee College of Music Professor/member of Mr. Sun (Joe K. Walsh), two folks
from Della Mae (Celia Woodsmith & Zoe Guigueno), and a member of Town Mountain (Bobby Britt).

I'm proud to give you the first of two installments....

Here is a belated posting of another great band, all of whom are longtime friends of the Hudson Valley Bluegrass Association and me too.So this announcement comes with my personal apology to Joan, Betsy, Mike, Jamie, and Sofia for denying everyone this wonderful music for so long. It won't take away from your enjoyment, however.

I decided to extract some audio from my videos for my iPod and decided to share them with you. The 3 new entries are from my Hudson Valley Bluegrass Association concerts with Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen, the Andy Statman Ramble, and the duet of Michael Daves and Jen Larson. So here's the first attempt...

The Grey Fox Bill Keith Banjo Summit audio link is included, but that's been available for a long time.

Enjoy, Fred

Hi Folks,

I'm back from a great week at Grey Fox. I'd been out of web contact & may not be able to catch up with Facebook and email, so please be patient.

It was an extraordinary time at the Creekside Stage, my 10th year in a row as an official media volunteer, where I accumulated about 25 hours of video with 3 camcorders. In addition to at least 5 always-top-shelf Berklee College of Music bands; 4 more emerging artist bands; mandolin moguls with Sam Bush & Sierra Hull; Molly Tuttle's encore with Billy Strings; & much more (see the link below). For the first time, what I consider four - count 'em - four special events: Interviews with Peter Rowan & Doyle Lawson by John Rossbach; remembering Doc Watson with Bryan Sutton, Billy Strings, & Joe Newberry; & good friend Akira Otsuka's Epilogue CD project: tribute to John Duffey with Akira onstage with Tim Kruzic, Kitsy Kuykendall, Ron Thomason & Jerry Douglas.

As usual, my videos will be coming out on the Grey Fox YouTube channel & Facebook page as time permits.

Here's a quick photo glance at all of this year's Grey Fox Creekside Stage activity from my official video footage.

After learning that John Rossbach would be interviewing Peter Rowan
at Grey Fox 2018's Creekside Stage where I record video as a volunteer,
I looked back at the 5 decades (so far) that Peter's influenced my bluegrass journey.

Here's what I just came up with: http://frobbi.org/slides/rowan/

I have  biased interest in sharing this. Steve is a good friend and so is Sofia, the fiddle player in the band.

Steve Martin
On the next installment of Steve Martin's Unreal Bluegrass , beginning Sunday August 5th , 7 to 10PM Eastern on WSDL 90.7FM Delmarva Public Radio my guests are The Ruta Beggars and Tony Trischka.
They appeared at Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival this year with Tony , their teacher and mentor , as part of the stage featuring artists from Berklee College of Music. Each band was superb . I was only able to catch this act with the help of Katy Daley who was the MC for the stage that afternoon.
The Ruta Beggars have a great stage presence and high performance IQ.They generate their own songs .

The vocals and instrumentals are stellar. We discuss the band and the Berklee College of Music.
They had just come off stage . The energy level was high . We had some fun.
This photograph is courtesy of one of my best friends at Grey Fox Bluegrass FestivalFred Robbins, which is saying a lot since I have so many dear ones there. Fred is a fierce artist behind any device capable of capturing images and video.You will see much of his work on the official website of Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival.
Steve Martin's Unreal Bluegrass is three hours of the best Bluegrass across the generations , combining conversation with the legends and those becoming. Pick Peace.It's an option.
PS Tony Trischka and I had a "one on one" chat latter in the day. Always fascinating .He has some new projects in the works.
That show will air soon.

Here's my first installment of the Songwriters Workshop on the Grass Roots Stage,
hosted by Caroline Isachsen.

As I walked up, my friend Jim Gaudet of Jim Gaudet & The Railroad Boys was sharing one of his personal creations.

Another treat from the Creekside Stage.
