Oh my, I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I can’t wait!

Sigh. The SplitLip/RRE show last night just made me that much more excited about TBF. Who’s doing a countdown? How many more days?

yonder at the sheridan
telluride house band
the sugarcanes
greensky bluegrass
railroad earth
three girls and their buddy
works progress administration
bela and toumani
and gotta be honest, im really stoked about the jams in town park and illium too

  1. RAILROAD EARTH!!! These boys are the heat right now, I’m tellin’ ya.
  2. David Byrne - I’ve always just missed him
  3. Elvis Costello - Hopin’ he and Emmylou sang a few together
  4. Tim and Jerry together - I couldn’t think of a better way to kick it off
    5 Three Girls & Their Buddy - sounds interesting
  5. Seein’ Greensky Bluegrass return
  6. The rest of the lineup

You can find a countdown on my web sites! :thumbsup

Punch Brother’s Play Bluegrass!!! It’s like a junior version of what is the House Band. There is SOOOOO MUCH TALENT in these bands, it’s just silly. Oh yeah, it would be nice to see Yonder how they were 5 years ago. But if it’s the new stuff…I think I might take a nap. Sorry, but there is something about putting distortion on a beautiful Colling’s acoustic guitar. It just ain’t my cup of tea.

Thanks Tom!!!

David Byrne
Sam Bush Band
Greensky Bluegrass
Yonder Mountain
