Carolina Lightnin’

        I thought my readers would enjoy this clip. I first met Tommy Edwards way back when he was with “The Bluegrass Experience,” the 1972 Union Grove World Champion band. Here he is joined by some fine musicians and friends old and new. Dr. Peter Temple and Tommy were my first big bluegrass influences. If you are ever in the N.C. Research Triangle area (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill etc) look for them at places the Q Shack, The Blue Note Grill, and the Pittsboro General Store. Check ’em out. Fine picking and singing; the real deal for traditional music.

      No fear. Besides, the best way to see bluegrass is live. When you take in a show tell ’em Dr. B sent you. Way out there they might say, “Who?”

    Just watched/listened to “Shuckin’ the corn”. The banjo and guitar players are so good, it’s scary! How they can play at such a speed, while standing there and looking so cool and relaxed, beats me.

    Sorry to hear you’ve had bad storms – had a few here in Scotland in December. Lots of property damage and a few people killed. As you say, prayers needed for all those who suffered.
