“Didn’t He Ramble” Songs of Charlie Poole. …..now, the rest of the story……

You’ve always heard the songwriters that said that great song just poured down on them and they couldn’t write it down fast enough. Then , if I remember correctly, Thomas Edison said his work was a large percentage of perspiration and a small percentage of inspiration. I imagine that is how most things happen. The story of our up in coming recording certainly has both these elements and more. You can say the seeds for this particular recording concept (Songs of Charlie Poole) started their germination process in the very early 2000’s at the University of Chicago Folk Festival. That’s … Continue reading

PASSIN’ THRU WACO (GEORGIA, THAT IS…..)

We had a fun trip yesterday, fun for many different reasons. Robert Montgomery, Stan Wilemon and myself were booked as a trio to play a venue called The Outpost Music Barn. It’s located around Tallapoosa, GA, in an area called Waco. My first time there and I believe Stan’s too, Robert has played there in years past. The Outpost is a great place to hear Bluegrass music, a real family atmosphere. If you’re in the area, you should stop in for a show!! There’s never too many trips where you leave home at noon and are back by midnight, that’s … Continue reading
