Folks,

Here's something I didn't just "discover", but am releasing for the first time.
You may find it amusing, maybe historic, maybe some good music.

Disclosure: The recording is not great and the only editing I did was to add a little bottom end to it.


In Atlanta 1970, Mike Nicolay, Bob Isenhour, and a bunch of friends
put this recording together for me and sent it to Cam Ranh Bay Vietnam
while I was stationed there.

Enjoy the conclusion of John Rossbach's intimate interview with Peter Rowan.
Peter also treats us to his latest song, "Carter Stanley's Eyes".

I think you'll enjoy two of the four great local bands performing at this annual event,
where the Hudson Valley Bluegrass Association participated for the 8th year in a row.

Please look for Ken Burns' Country Music Documentary next September on PBS.
http://kenburns.com/films/country-music/
Two of my photographs have been confirmed to be included. I was told the film is "locked".
I guess this is as firm as something like this can be.
These are the two images...

The Gang at Fincastle 1966


Standing (L to R): Frank Wing, Al McCanless, Jim Silver, ?, Tom Isenhour, Chuck Wagner (sitting on the Silver Streak)
Kneeling (L to R): ?, Bob Isenhour, Mike Nicolay, Fred Robbins, Tom Sprott
- From this series... http://frobbi.org/slides/fincastle/
- In PBS Episode 6

China and Edna Poplin at Union Grove 1968:

- From here.... http://frobbi.org/slides/ug1968
- In PBS Episode 8

Here's hoping!

The Hudson Valley Bluegrass Association just hosted The Bluegrass Characters for a very
entertaining concert. After their leader Stacy Phillips passed away suddenly, they decided
to carry on the Characters tradition. With my good friend Phil Zimmerman on mandolin,
Andy Bromage on guitar, and Pete Kelly on bass, this configuration includes two HVBA
friends (and mine too), Sofia Chiarandini on fiddle and Jerry Oland on banjo.
Enjoy the first of two sets.

I've been looking forward to sharing this event for a long time.
The project journey and the music are absolutely stunning.

Yes, I'm biased since my good friend Akira Otsuka, along with his now-departed project partner Ronnie Freeland, are the nucleus of this project, started in 2002!

This is the first half of an hour at the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival with Akira, Ron Thomason, Kitsy Kuykendall, Jerry Douglas, and moderator Tim Kruzic, as they tell stories of John Duffey and this amazing journey...

Martin Beckman, with the help of his daughter Natalie, has generously shared their recordings and photos of the band he was in, The Dixie Bluegrass Boys, in what he said was the last performance of the full band. We both have interest in our mutual departed friend, banjoist Al Osteen.
Martin picked while Natalie recorded and took photos.

      Randall Collins-fiddle, Jerry Moore (guest & friend)-fiddle, Larry Jefferson-mandolin,
          Sam Cobb-bass, Curtis Blackwell-guitar, Martin Beckman-guitar, Al Osteen-banjo

I've also added links to my Al Osteen tribute http://frobbi.org/audio/alosteen.html

I thought about showing my own brief backstage clips of Sam at the 2010 Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival,
but asked "Revival: The Sam Bush Story" co-creator Wayne Franklin if it would do any harm.
He immediately said, "Go for it!". So what the heck...

You're gonna enjoy this first sample of a magic intimate hour last summer at Grey Fox.
Very appropriate with the recent documentary about one of the stars, which includes
an interview with the other one!

A lot of folks come every year to the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival and hardly ever watch a stage performance. These guys might be part of that bunch...
