|Welcome to the Adirondack/Appalachian Composer's Home||
This is an incredible group of musicians playing incredible compositions.
I've recently added a few new pages to the website. Lots of new pictures taken by Mary have also been uploaded. Please be sure to browse around and enjoy them.
Mary and I moved here to sunny eastern Tennessee from the great Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York. I've created a page in which I compare the populations and mean average incomes here at "County Comparisons".
If you click on "Bluegrass & Fiddling", then click on "Hobby Music", then click on "Repertoire", you'll have a choice of 4 different instrument pages that now have drop-down pages of photographs of many of the musicians I know playing their instruments. There's a "Guitarists & Bassists" page, a "Banjoists",a "Mandolinists" and a "Fiddler's" picture page. Also under the same "Bluegrass & Fiddling" header there's a drop down page named "Fiddliferous" and under this page is a new page of YouTube videos that I have been practicing lately on the fiddle. Check out the "Fiddle Tune Practice Page".
Also I've added lots of breathtakingly beautiful Spring pictures by Mary of various subjects here in the South. Check it out here at "Spring 2012 in the South".
Here's a really cool tune I've been playing a lot after having just learned it from an early recording. It's written by Kenny Baker and also performed by him. It's one of a trio of Kenny Baker tunes I've learned lately. Visit my "Fiddle Tunes Practice Page" to hear the others.
This afternoon at 2:00 (CDT) the family of Earl Scruggs will host a public funeral for Earl at the Nashville Ryman Auditorium. "A Celebration of Life for Earl Scruggs" will be broadcast live, commercial-free, by WSM 650AM.
It will also be broadcast live on www.wsmonline.com
