"It's All Good" ... Or Is It?

      I believe you can hear traces of Flatt and Scruggs in most modern bluegrass, the piece by Michael Davies and Naom Pikenelly, "New Camptown Races" is an incredible piece, definitely in the Bluegrass Wheelhouse. People are going to play what they want, I'm sure that you hear a lot more than me. Have you heard "Stringworks" by Kristin Scott Benson? I find it incredibly refreshing.

    Well, Keep on truckin' out there and keep up the writing.

We have Kristin's new CD, but haven't had time to listen to it, yet....I'm certain it's fine, though. I'll keep writing, if you keep reading and commenting. Thanks. 

As Duke Ellington said, "There are only two kinds of music -- good and bad."

Testify!
