We don't mention entertainment in Bluegrass that often, but watching Ted's excellent videos here, we see a group that really enjoys playing together. When you can add videos to back up what you are saying, like here, it really puts life in your article. Good One Ted,

Jim

Thanks a lot, Jim. Over the years our relationship with these guys, their family, other fans, and their music has been a source of genuine joy in our lives. I make no pretense of journalistic objectivity. 

Hi Ted,

      That version of "little drummer boy" cracks me up. The drummer is so deadpan,but each time thru he jazzs it up, everyone is laughing. You can't pick that up on a CD. I am growing to like them more and more, what is a recent CD you would reccommend?

     Before I quit reviewing, the last group that I really grew to like was Flatt Lonesome, and getting to review each CD, they really grew lot from CD to CD. I got to know them a bit from facebook. You can tell they really enjoy playing with each other.  Buddy  is a great guitar player ,plus singer, as his sisters are  also, well, keep writing and picking!!

Jim
