Bluegrass and Sound

How do you take five not very noisy instruments that cannot be listened to without electronic amplification except in a rather small room and turn their music into something large groups of people can listen to? Add to this problem the fact that each of the instruments has a distinctive native sound that doesn't necessarily mix well with the others. The mandolin, beloved to Bill Monroe, has little or no sustain and must be played with a tremolo picking style to hold a note. The guitar is a…See More

About My YouTube Experience

I started making videos just to see if the new technology worked for me. Once I decided they were a pretty good way to share bluegrass music, it became inevitable that I would have to start a You Tube channel of my own. When I bought a low priced HD camcorder and began to learn to make titles, we started getting serious about including video as a part of our effort to communicate the part of the bluegrass world we live in. I say “we,” because my long suffering wife, Irene, has become an…See More

Below is a re-post of my preview of IBMA's World of Bluegrass annual convention to be held in Raleigh, NC from September 24 - 28, 2013.  Judged by its scope and schedule, this should be the premier bluegrass event in the country from every perspective.

"Ted,     Sorry, I misread your point, I was just bringing up a couple of groups, unmentioned by you, that's all. The groups you mentioned are all pretty traditional in my opinion, LRB, Gibson Brothers, 3rd Tyme Out and Carl…"

Essay: What Makes Popular, Popular?

I watched The History of the Eagles film with huge fascination on Showtime a few weeks ago. Beyond the interpersonal conflicts, the lifestyle of a rock band, and the nostalgia of so many songs I remember with pleasure from the 70's despite my not having been a fan, the film scratched an itch that's been bouncing around in my head for months. There was lots of talk about defining themselves and refining themselves into the band they…See More

"When this happened I was glued to it.  To me it was a social revolution.  Johnny Cash stood for integrity.  Willie kept hinting at the yoga way of life and Waylon was against discrimination.  Kris was anti-war.  I guess we…"

"Independent public radio station WNCW (88.7fm) takes requests - talk to a LIVE person (even at 3:00am!) - still today.  Huge music library, the most knowledgeable DJs you'll find pretty much anywhere.  Worldwide streaming at…"

"Terry - The advent of auto play radio broadcasts has made such requests a rarity.  Nevertheless, I see today's pop/country as an extension of what's happening in the country and maintain my belief that there will always be an audience…"
