Hardly Strictly Bluegrass

5 10 2008

With five stages and bands changing about every 75 minutes, I’d say that my first full day of Hardly Strictly Bluegrass was pretty darned satisfying. I didn’t try to see everything, but I don’t think there was anything less than top notch. Unfortunately, I missed Emmylou Harris and her buddies. So here’s what I did see:

  1. Teft Merritt
  2. Jimmie Dale Gilmore
  3. Carlene Carter
  4. Waco Brothers
  5. Guy Clark
  6. Bad Livers (That was a first for banjo, tuba and guitar in a bluegrass band.)
  7. Richard Thompson
  8. Nick Lowe
  9. Del McCoury
  10. Dave Alvin and a bunch of really great female musicians
  11. Global Drumming with *()fekan gfi3q^ (or something like that)

Holy moly! Jimmie Dale, Richard Thompson, Nick Lowe, Guy Clark, Del McCoury?!!! Died and gone to heaven, that’s all I can say. Sorry about Emmylou, but still.

That’s quite an inspiring day.

Where’s the ukelele when you need it?
