Deja vu Div (all over again subsection)

Jim Wright over at Stonekettle Station has pretty much summed up my feelings on the current foreign policy discourse occuring down in the GWTP and in the media. It's long, and at times repetitive, but, if you care and have the memories I do, it deserves your time and attention.

A Little Saturday Nite Bluegrass Div

There's a group of pickers and singers that I jam with a couple of times a month here in the Hills. I seems at the end of the evening, this song is always played.
Written By Carter and Ralph Stanley, here's Who Will Sing For Me ?


Ricky Skaggs - lead vocal and guitar, Doc Watson and Earl (betcha didn't know he played guitar) Scruggs - harmony/chorus vocal and guitar.

Geography Div (Y'all subsection)

I know we've done a similar one (or two), but it's just so ripe for picking (aside from having some of the world's dumbest legislators and politicians).

A Little Saturday Nite Bluegrass Div

To my way of thinking, this isn't "country." Modern "country music" seems to me to be Rock and Roll wearing boots. This is 100% acoustic and done by some masters.



Byron Berline - Fiddle, Dan Crary - Guitar, John Hickman - Banjo and Steve Spurgin - Bass.

A Little Saturday Nite Bluegrass Div

Heading back to the Black Hills next week. Can't say that Western Skies by Hot Rize doesen't make me feel a bit anxious to be there.



Hot Rize: Tim O'Brien - Mandolin, Pete Wernick - Banjo, Nick Forster - Bass and Bryan Sutton - Guitar
