    Man, a full Billy Christmas album would be awesome.



    This one is better than the official Spotify Bluegrass Christmas playlist. Think someone started with it and added a few more.

    My oldest daughter is a college freshman and said she wants to go. We’ll see if that holds up a month from now, but I may end up taking her.

    Oh my. Guests announced for the Doc Watson celebration in Winston in March. Some new and old heavy hitter bluegrass guitarists, and one of Doc’s bassists.

    I’ve been on a good run lately picking various show dates before the details, guests, sit-ins are announced/happen.

    Got a 3.5 hr road trip coming up once I get packed up, and Nugs finally released the NYE shows. :bananallama:

    Shit makes me so happy. Written by Chris Henry. Jarrod’s brother was in Chris’ band so that’s where they got it from. About to buy the lesson video from Chris, and start butchering the fuck out of it at about 70% speed. :laugh:

    I think some of Jarrod’s best work is on this song. He has been smashing it since they started playing it, but this is one I think Alex has really elevated when he joined. A song like that written on mandolin is perfect for fiddle.

    Town Mountain tonight. Bluegrass based but they’ve drifted to more of a southern appalachian rock vibe over the years, adding drums and such.

    They were pretty fun, but they’ve changed so much. Banjo player left the band this month, and last night they had pedal steel guitar instead. They’ve moved further into that appalachian rock vibe.

    Wild that they used to wear suits and play single mic traditional bluegrass. Glad they’re doing what they want, but I wasn’t too crazy about last night really.

    Their banjo player was great too, and was one of my favorite things about them.

    Last night was way more Honkeytonk than Hootenanny.

    Yeah buddy. Probably my favorite Waltz from Bill Monroe. His recordings of it are usually really short though. He and Doc would play it and be done in 2 minutes. Usually practice it with this exact version since there’s an extra mando, or I also like the Billy/Don Julio album version for that.

    I have watched all those Ryman shows with all of those guests a few times. The way they switch gears and bring out Bobby for some Dead is just great. That would have been amazing to see. I have a feeling I’ll kick myself for not going to these upcoming Ryman shows too.

    I love the new lineup, what Alex brings, all the new songs/albums and where they are, but man those pre-pandemic shows where they would jam dead stuff were fun. They had less of a catalog to pull from so they were jamming out non-bluegrass covers more, and the four had more time to themselves on a tune that is now spread out to Alex. Not that I would want them to go back to that, it was just different and fun too.

    I still sometimes send my mandolin teacher a video lesson or tab of what I want to learn, so he can tell me if it’s a good one to use or not. This was his response earlier this year to a random Lonesome Moonlight tab I found.

    There were people in Asheville literally getting back in line as soon as the show ended. It was one of the most absurd things I’ve ever seen. Enjoy the city you’re in instead of hoarding posters to fund your trip to the next show.

    That Ashville line was a thing of beauty. You could get in line and be in your seat in 10 minutes no matter what time you strolled up after the doors opened.

    Posters aren’t really my thing either. I have a few posters I’ve picked up and framed, but I’m not waiting in any significant line.

    I think the LE pin people might take the absurdity cake for me. They’re crazy about those pins.

    How many posters do you have?

    I visited a friend of mine over the holidays who I hadn’t seen in years. He has this huge art rack with drawers full of well over 100 unframed prints from all kinds of shows. It doesn’t seem to me he will ever get even 1/4 of them framed and still buys more.

    That you? (not a kink shame)

    Billy - 4 total, 2 framed (The Farm as seen above and the Ryman green Daniel Danger) and 2 Hatch Ryman unframed.

    Overall, got 5 more maybe unframed. About 12-15 hanging up.

    But I've been better at being selective now. I'm out of wall space, don't have an office to display them in anymore, and getting older about it. Buyer's remorse. Etc.

    I've gone to shows, see the poster, and gone nope. None of the posters from this weekend excite me. I feel like getting a 3night run centerpiece that I'm in love with was a huge cherry on top for my personal collection.

    I get it, but I also don’t. Lol

    I want a TAB/Goose poster from Fairfax last year where Billy sat in. But I’m never spending a half day or more in line for one. Those are around $1k on eBay right now. I’ll probably just end up buying a reproduction for like $20-30

    Molly Tuttle and Golden Highway won the Grammy for best Bluegrass album for Crooked Tree.

    Fiddler from that band Bronwyn Keith-Hynes deserves some love. She’s won back to back IBMA fiddler of the year awards. Also won an instrumentalist of the year when she was in Mile Twelve before breaking solo and joining Molly. Definitely somebody to check out if you like fiddle.

    Mile Twelve are also worth listening to or catching, either with Bronwyn or their new fiddler.
