What do you play, BB?

drljefe: I'd probably play a lot better if I had no teeth.

Late 1700's/early 1800's.. Neck's been grafted once (original scroll!), original finish and she's been rebuilt - according to the record inside the body - only twice.

I've had her for about 15 years. I've got two others, but this one's my fav by a l o n g shot.

(actually been playing for about 30 years now off and on...)

yeah moose, she's an amazing work off art and I am truly honored to be able to claim her as my own. phenomenol voice, amazingly rich & deep tone & timbre.. I literally feel this baby in my bones when I draw the bow...

Im running Prim steels & have filed the bridge to accommodate triple stops.

Not takin' it with me on my trip this summer 'cause it wiuld be just too hard on the instrument. Ah well... It'll be waiting when I get back!!

Some bluegrass in the back country for sure:

Juniper Jam in Enterpise Oregon, Sept 3, 2011

My old climbing parner from Hell's Canyon and the Wallowas playing guitar and fiddle for the band Corn Mash.


Head up there for the mountains and stay for the music. Should be good times. I wish I was there right now.

Ok, so I gotta bump this to brag on my nephew Miles. He's 14 and a killer mandolin player. This is a video of him (he's the one on the right) and his partner Zach at the Glenwood Springs Stars of Tomorrow contest. Yesterday they were on Pastor Mustard's bluegrass show on Aspen Public Radio being interviewed and playing for 1 1/2 hrs. There's a good chance this young duo is going to open for David Grisman when his national tour comes to Carbondale in July....enjoy!

ps - I can't seem to figure out how to make the video become imbedded in the thread. I tried pasting the info to the right of the "=" sign, but I didn't find the "share" option it talks about.

Been getting into Joy Kills Sorrow lately. Very unique and CRAZY talented. Their guitar player is the 2006 Winfield champ, and they don't even bother showcasing his talents on most songs. Mandolin player is a beast. Bass player won a John Lennon song writing prize, whatever that means, and the singer is actually a rippin' cellist, but I don't think she ever picks it up with this band. But she does have a George Jones tattoo, and rocks some crazy 80s fashion. Quirky. Regardless, talent to spare, all the way around. Check this out:

EDIT - and no, I wouldn't call this "bluegrass" sensu stricto, but it's clearly an offshoot

Bump for music!

Still would love to have an Eastside Climbers Jam Weekend.

We don't exactly play bluegrass but my band The Eastside 5 is playing the Mobil this Sunday at 4.

Just got back from the First Mammoth bluegrass festival. It was pretty cool. I Recommend the bands Colorado(w/Jeff scroggins), and Backcountry(w/Chris Stuart). Friends of mine are learning the banjo, and I am thinking of picking up the mandolin
