Major props to the Independent for their World of Bluegrass coverage. These videos are fantastic and capture the spirit of the event. Please continue this type of video coverage for music events.
I'll never forget the Steep Canyon Rangers show at the Mellow Mushroom in Chapel Hill on 9/11. The world was in shock that day and practically every band canceled their show that night. But Steep Canyon knew what people needed was music, so the show went on as scheduled. The TV's in the restaurant had been on all day, but 15 minutes before the music started they turned off every single one of them and for that glorious evening the band played to a capacity crowd. The music was exactly the kind of healing everyone needed. I remember how crowded it was because I had friends in town who came with me and they were eager to meet (original fiddler) Lizzie Hamilton. But they weren't able to get close enough there were so many fans swarming the band after the show.
Their success is due to their incredible musicianship and songwriting, but more importantly they are the nicest group of guys you'll ever meet.
Such a great show! Thanks for the video.
Biggest surprise for me was how much he shredded on guitar. There were some crazy rockstar solos in the new songs that don't appear on the album.
Great writeup. I'm excited for this season and happy that the Bulls are keeping up their gem of a ballpark.
One can argue that the DBAP was the anchor for the ATC and started the downtown transformation.
That would be so cool to have the IBMA move here. Let's do it!
Thank you Marianne for booking the best acts. Every time I get excited because my favorite bluegrass / newgrass / singer-songwriter / Americana act is in town, it's because you brought them here.
It's so great that Durham is recognized as a food town. My faves are Watts Grocery, Rue Cler, and Thai Cafe.
