Art of Sound

        Well, it’s about time to winterize the old converted school bus. We’re gonna go back out one more time, though, for a trip to Art of Sound in Shelby, N.C. My little Marie is gonna ride up front and Marfar will play bass. (My son will miss due to a prior commitment, but he’ll be home for the holidays)

        Miss Megan Peeler will be at the Don Gibson (it’s her hometown venue) on Thursday along with Della Mae Bluegrass, who I met at IBMA.

        Saturday shows include singer-songwriter Al Dunkleman and New Plowed Ground, (he has a new CD due out this spring; fine work) and my old young pals Darin and Brooke Aldridge, the Bluegrass Sweethearts. Any time the kids play in North Carolina there’s a good chance Dr. B will be there.

        The  Harris Brothers, Balsam Range, a Django jam tribute, a big band orchestra, (Frank Love Band) great food and people; Art of Sound is the traditional closer for the N.C festival season; one we never miss.

        Look for me; I’ll be a face in the crowd. Y’all all know how to find Tommy Bibey; he’s the one with the straw hat and one green and one blue eye. (for bluegrass) Hope to see you there.

    Checked out the website for this festival,it looks good. If we weren’t so tied up nowadays, Shelby wouldn’t wouldn’t be too far to go for some good music.

    And I was pleased to see in the picture of Al Dunkleman and New Plowed Ground a certain mandolin player we know.

  2. “Art of Sound” – what a beautiful name for an event… Glad you get one more trip out in the school-bus! Have a good time, Dr. B, and tell Marfar to play some autumn tunes on her bass.
