Thanks to those of you who made it out to one of the first two 'Pickin'-Allstar Bluegrass Jam' Shows in Raleigh, North Carolina and Bristol, Virginia last week. (We travel to Kutztown, PA at Kutztown University this coming Thursday)
We had a ball at both venues. I served as MC and had the opportunity to bring to the stage some of the very best in the business.
Fiddle: Michael Cleveland and Jason Carter
Bass: Missy Raines and Mike Bub
Banjo: Rob McCoury and Terry Baucom
Guitar: Tim Stafford, Kenny Smith, Steve Gulley, Ronnie Bowman & Josh Williams
Dobro: Phil Leadbetter and Rob Ickes
Mandolin: Alan Bibey and Mike Compton
Female Vocalists: Dale Ann Bradley, Amanda Smith and Kim Fox
It was especially great to hear Ronnie Bowman sing again! I have posted a video from a little while back with Ronnie singing one of my favorite Tim Stafford songs, "Midwestern Town", accompanied by Tim and Bryan Sutton. Enjoy!
