Episode 80 - A Can of Worms
In this episode I put my hand right down in that ooey, gooey can of worms and discuss just exactly what the heck is bluegrass. Words are important. That how we humans sort stuff out in our mind and in this episode I talk about what can and cannot be filed under bluegrass.
I also venture into uncharted legal territory by playing clips of many songs as examples of what I am discussing. Any lawyers, looking to find a way to make their next BMW payment, can have a field day examining this episode... but, in the end, they will discover that it's all FAIR USE, as defined by law, blahbity, blah, blah, blah.

Extra goodies for this episode:
Here is the full video of Cedar Hill doing Free Bird at the Atlanta Steeplechase--good paying gig for over 18 years! I think it was the Sunday morning after this gig that I cut my hair and never looked back.
Here's a link to download the "mini" flyer you can print out and give to your bluegrass pickin' friends to help me promote the show.
