Hi Danny, I've got tickets for your upcoming show near Washington, DC on April 27. I imagine you'll play some of Stove Up. After all, this is a traditional bluegrass area. But some of us enjoy experimental and improvised music. I'm talking about the kind you put out on Junior Sampled and Shri 108, or that you played with Mimi Naja and Tyler Thompson at Mac's Place. I'm saying bring your bass and your electronics. Get funky! There'll be at least two people in the audience with shit-eating grins on their faces if you do that! That's me and my wife. If you just play straight up bluegrass, I'm not gonna get laid.
well, i'm playing stuff off my new cd, so that's how that's gonna go, that's kinda the whole point of me coming 3000 miles away from my couch. sorry about that.
I've got roots in WV where several of my cousins worked in the coal mines. I was wondering if horses were used in that setting (re:Horses in the Mines), or if you were more familiar with them being used in salt mines.
I'm struggling to decipher the lyrics of that song in preparation for a family band performance at the old-time festival in WV, known as "Clifftop" which is the town where it's located. AKA the Appalachian String Band Festival, it celebrates old-time music in a big way and I want to bring part of our reunion activities to this event this summer (2017). I see old-time music and groups such as the Bad Livers as an embodiment of the heart & spirit of the WV mountain culture.
Thanks for all your inspired song writing and music through the years, because it has been such an important continuation of roots music in our country.
I think it is very cool that I found your Minner Bucket Records site since my last name is Minner. I was wondering if you have ever been to or performed at Bluegrass Underground in Tennessee? It is where Grammy award winning bands play to audiences of 500, 300 ft down and 1/2 mile back in a cave. Here is the site http://bluegrassunderground.com/
I love the music!
