i noticed this on my main drive this morning and wondered what it was doing there… i thought all the bluegrass had been moved to a backup drive.  i was in the mood for a bit of bluegrass, so i put it on.  but lo and behold, it’s more like “the jazz david grisman” (mostly), and when ‘maxpower’ seeded it on dime, he classified it as jazz.  well, well.  and they did finish up with some bluegrass, in the end.

in washington, dc, back in the 1980s, there was a lot of bluegrass, and wamu-fm had a bluegrass show on every afternoon, which i’d catch the end of , on my drive home.  that was how i got interested in bluegrass, though i don’t listen to much anymore.  there’s a lot to be said for serendipity.

no cover today – just taking a very short break, don’t have the time.
