Episode 54 - Just Go

In this episode I give an "after action report" on a recent trip to see the Del McCoury Band perform at the Georgia Theater in Athens, Georgia. I talk about why you absolutely cannot "do bluegrass" from the comfort of your couch. I also get into the financial realities of the music world and a lot of other thoughts that crossed my mind on the way home. Have fun!

I mentioned that one of the things that often holds "noobs" and "beginners" back is the lack of someone to bum around with and I suggested that you listen to my previous episode on this topic. Here it is:

A snap shot from the Del McCoury show:

Del is obviously proud of all those boys. And rightly so.


And here is a link to the fair trade coffee roastery right here in Americus, Georgia where Jean gets her coffee--Cafe Campesino. Look for them at Del Fest!

Next, this is the vinyl album I picked up at their show. You can get yours here.
