There is just something about bluegrass/folk music that I love. I remember driving through Kentucky as a child on our way from North Carolina to Wisconsin and listening to a local bluegrass station, and I believe that was the first time I was moved by music.
I am currently obsessed with the Cold Mountain soundtrack.
Here’s another fun video from the Gondola Sessions: The Yonder Mountain String Band gives bluegrass a funky twist thanks to Ben Kaufmann’s wicked bass playing. The band plays their tune, “Criminal,” while cruising down a mountain in Telluride, CO. If you enjoy the song, you can find it on their 2009 release, The Show.
As promised, here’s more from the dynamite Ryman set by the Earls of Leicester. This is “Dig a Hole In the Meadow”, aka “Darling Corey/Cora”. Love the down ‘n’ dirty lick that closes Johnny Warren’s fiddle break.
