Anonny Mouse Bluegrass music is for...??? (37) RE: Bluegrass music is for...??? 19 Jun 06


...is for...anyone who wants to watch lightning fast flatpickers; humongous sounding dreads--mostly Martin, Collings and custom. For anyone looking for the absolute cream d'el a cream of banjo pickers; for those who want fiddling that puts "the Devil Went Down to Georgia" into the "you must be KIDDING me" category. For anyone who wants to attend a family and generationally kind and friendly fest; for anyone who respects teen-age virtuosos blow us old guys off the stage; for anyone who loves Gospel, traditional and even inventive (as in jazz or classical) music. For anyone who wants to seriously see the capabilities of guitar, mando and banjo. For anyone who appreciates 4 and 5 part harmonies; for anyone who enjoys looking at "grail" acoustic guitars, banjos and mandolins; for anyone who enjoys talking with, and getting TIPS from the nationally known bluegrass headliners--who treat you like you've been a long, lost friend; for anyone who enjoys a park full of folks, who--if you leave your chairs and programs out when you leave for two hours, will have moved them for you out of the rain; for anyone who enjoys trusting a group of "strangers" to treat you kindly, not steal or rip you off--but actually protect your "stuff" when you go out for supper for 90 minutes; for anyone who likes average, hard-working folks who LOVE music; for anyone who wants to see the milk of human kindness; for anyone who EVER wanted to play a pre-war Martin, a Gibson classic banjo, a Loar mando--which will be handed over to you to try by the virtuoso who just got off stage; for anyone who likes making short-term friends who share your passion; for anyone looking to get a coupla days of cheap food, slushes, home-made lemonade (and they put the lemon in your cup that they squeezes in front of you; for anyone who celebrates the human spirit, faith, hope and love. For anyone....
