The Bluegrass Sweethearts

        This is a live report from Bluegrass First Class.  Tom T. and Dixie Hall called Darin and Brooke Aldridge the Bluegrass Sweethearts.  They are aptly named; all dressed up in a Valentine’s theme for the night show.  Brooke is beautiful in red and Darin has on black slacks and a red shirt and a dark coat.  If it’s like my family she did the color co-ordination.  The boys have on dark slacks, white shirts and ties.  Sharp.

        It is bluegrass, but also contemporary acoustic country.  It is spiritual.  It seeks truth and grace instead of exploitation of the dark side of human nature often seen in modern life.  Old-fashioned is  a good thing.  They just played their duet ‘The Sweetest Waste of Time.”  Their duet work is my favorite of all.  They’re getting ready to do “It Moves Me.”  It does, so I’m gonna go listen.  I’ll be back later.

    Hey Dr. Bibey,

    Just wanted to let you know that I checked out your blog today. I enjoyed reading many of your posts.

    It was great meeting you last night (I was the brown-haired girl at the Dailey & Vincent record table beside Darin & Brooke Aldridge table).

    Thanks for your reports! Hope to see you somewhere on the bluegrass trail again!

      Well, bless your heart for dropping by. I have had a lot of fun and made a bunch of friends in bluegrass. For our family and friends most of our social life revolves around the music.

      Dailey and Vincent are some kinda singers. I remember them all the way back to when Jamie came on the scene with Doyle.

      Glad to get to know you, and I’ll come by and shake and howdy again.

      Dr. B

    Dr.B., what a great way to spend a Saturday – with your friends and all the bluegrass you care to listen to. Love your kind words on Darin & Brooke. They truly are the Bluegrass Sweethearts.

      I wish everyone could know the joy of this music. By no means are we perfect, but I believe we get to experience a sense of community that exceeds much of what modern life has to offer.

      All the best my friend,

      Dr. B
