Dailey & Vincent at the Ark

| July 12, 2010

We ventured over to Ann Arbor last Thursday, July 8, 2010 to see Dailey & Vincent. As I anticipated, it was a high powered show: powerful vocals, powerful instrumentals, impressive stage presence, a truly great experience for the audience. Attention to detail, in singing and presentation, is the hallmark of a Dailey & Vincent performance. […]

Let me see, Doyle Lawson, Dailey & Vincent, James King, Summertown Road, Paul Williams, NewFound Road, Kenny and Amanda Smith and Larry Stephenson. Joe […]

Fun, So Far

| September 28, 2009

I wish I had some cool pictures to show you, but I haven’t used my camera much this trip.  I couldn’t tell you how much I enjoy riding in Lex, and this trip has made up for a recent lack of that activity.  We drove and drove last Wednesday, and arrived at Vine Grove, KY […]

Vine Grove Bluegrass Festival, Thursday

| September 25, 2009

We are having a nice time here in Vine Grove. There has been a bit of rain, but the festival committee added a second big tent, and the crowd was high and dry last night. The bean supper, band scramble and performances were well attended. Here are a couple of photos from Thursday evening. This […]

Wilmington, Ohio Bluegrass

| November 18, 2008

Blue might be the word in Wilmington, after last week’s news about DHL closing its operations there. I hope that event is averted, some way or another. We visited the Roberts Centre near Wilmington, Ohio last Friday and Saturday for another kind of blue, a fine bluegrass show presented by Joe Mullins. A lot of […]

I Know, I Know

| November 11, 2008

I haven’t posted like I should.  We’ve been sick here, I know it’s a poor excuse.  D1 got the bug Friday.  I spent yesterday morning at the ER with her, so she could get an IV and some meds for nausea.  Not a lot of fun, this “virus” that is going around. We did see […]

Dailey & Vincent

| November 6, 2008

Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent will bring their highly acclaimed group, Dailey and Vincent, to the Lila Jones Theater, Oakland Community College Royal Oak Campus tomorrow.  You can read about the show and buy tickets on-line.  There are only 39 on-line tickets left as of this morning, and I’m sure this show will be a […]

I just finished posting Papa’s pictures from our time at IBMA in Nashville. There were more than 700! I split them into several galleries, so you can look only a what you are interested in. Here’s my favorite: This cute little girl came along, pulling the bass on a cart. The stool was attached somehow, […]

Oakland Community College Bluegrass Series

| August 23, 2008

The line-up for this year’s Oakland Community College Bluegrass Series has been announced. The best news about this announcement is that the performances will be held at in Royal Oak this year, after a several year hiatus. The location is the Lila Jones Theater at 739 South Washington, Royal Oak, MI 48067. The concerts begin […]

Milan Bluegrass Festival, Day 3

| August 8, 2008

Today’s much anticipated line-up includes Don Rigsby, the LRB, Dailey and Vincent, Doyle Lawson, the Grascals, the Lewis Family and The Bluegrass Thoroughbreds. I’ve hardly cooked a thing, and have eaten several sin foods, an elephant ear was among them. Lightning didn’t strike, so we’re fine. We’re having a great time, come on out and […]
