Hi Folks,

Well, as promised, the 2nd installment of the "Ken Landreth Collection" of music
is now available. It's from Carlton Haney's 5th Annual Camp Springs Festival in 1969
and includes the Reno & Smiley Story and 3 sets of Dr. Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mtn Boys.

You can find it at http://frobbi.org/audio/landreth/Reidsville1969/index.html
and, as always, on my Picking Page at http://frobbi.org/picking.html

Stay tuned for more.

Repeated thanks for Ken Landreth and his efforts!

This was their first festival!

Red Allen was the guest.

I moved the Byron Berline & Gold Rush videos from my website to YouTube for better quality and faster streaming. 

Last summer, Byron came to Poughkeepsie, NY, at my request, and with the hard work of the Hudson Valley Bluegrass Association, gathered some great local musicians for a concert.

The video was shot by Steve Jacobi.

Enjoy,
Fred

Saved your treasure trove of clips to listen to over the future. Glad to see our "local gal," Sarah Jarosz who lives up toward Austin in Wimberly, Tx. She's amazing. Thanks very much, Fred!

Hey Lloyd, You're very welcome!

That Grey Fox Mandolin Masters Workshop in 2008 was the first time I saw Sarah. I was blown away with her easygoing musical maturity!

Wimberley's where my longtime friend Alan Munde lives too.

Folks,
 
I've just added some more great music to the Landreth Collection's Camp Springs 1969:
The Stanley Brothers Story; Emerson, Waldron & the Lee Highway Boys;
Curtis Blackwell, Randall Collins & the Dixie Bluegrass Boys with Al Osteen;
and the completed Carlton Haney's "The Bluegrass Story".
 
 
Thanks again to Ken Landreth, who's doing all the work late at night: digitizing and 
"sweetening" the audio, writing the performer and song lists, then uploading to me.

I'm thrilled and honored to be able to make available the 55-minute video I captured of the interview with Del McCoury by National Endowment for the Arts Media Producer Josephine Reed. It took place at Grey Fox 2010.
 
As you may know, the NEA declared Del an official National Treasure.
 
Happily he's returning to Grey Fox this summer.

We're all very lucky that Ken Landreth is back and his tape recorder is fixed.

With a lot of work, he's given me some more great, historic, high-quality recordings.

Added to the Landreth Collection are Carlton Haney's Berryville 1969 with the Story of Bluegrass and Bill Monroe's Bean Blossom 1971.

The Bean Blossom 1971 series has Ralph Stanley (with Skaggs & Whitley), Jimmy Martin (with Alan Munde), Jim & Jesse, and the Country Gentlemen.

I'm proud to have these gems on my website!

Check out the entire collection at http://frobbi.org/landrethcollection.html

...and stay tuned for more!

Here's a wonderful, short, historic audio clip you should enjoy. Recorded by Tom King at Carlton Haney's Fincastle 1965, it consists of brief promos for the Tom King Show on WBLU, Salem, Va. You'll hear Carter & Ralph Stanley, Clyde Moody, Bill Monroe, Mac Wiseman, & Red Smiley.
Thanks to Tom for this little gem!

I could not agree more...Wayne Golding was a fine singer, a great bass player, and a fine person. I feel honored to have known him back in the 60s when he was playing with Wesley and Jimmy in the Twin County Partners. I was really happy to find this recording to remind me of the great times we had at fiddlers conventions back then.

I'll agree with Ken and Danny B on Wayne Golding. I had the pleasure of picking with him for about 3 years in the

early 80's . He was a fine man and fine singer and bass player.

Folks,

I'm pleased to announce the inauguration of a new audio series: The Phil Zimmerman Collection.
Phil has started us out with a gem from the 1969 Berryville Festival.
You'll hear Mike Seeger and Maybelle Carter warming up backstage, then Mike,
Maybelle, and Bill Monroe onstage!

It all starts at http://frobbi.org/zimmermancollection.html

As always, you can also find it on my Picking Page at http://frobbi.org/picking.html
in the "From My Friends" section.

I'll be adding more detail when possible. Corrections and historical background are welcome.

Enjoy!
