Mike Auldridge Tribute Concert, Birchmere

Mike Auldridge’s elegant musicianship forever changed the sound of the Dobro in American roots music. With the Seldom Scene, Chesapeake and others, he starred on hundreds of Birchmere evenings, and his death on Dec. 28, 2012 marked the passing of one of the DC area’s greatest creators, most influential players, and most cherished friends.

Some of Auldridge’s own cherished friends will gather Wednesday, Feb. 12
at The Birchmere for a night one more unforgettable night of Mike
Auldridge music. Jerry Douglas, Emmylou Harris, David Bromberg, Rob
Ickes, John Starling, Tom Gray, The Seldom Scene and other greats will
sing and play songs and praises.

ResoSummit 2011

I got to Nashville yesterday evening and am patting myself on the back for allowing an extra day to recoup from the long travel day and adjust to the time change. I left Alaska Tues night after midnight, stopped in Seattle, Oakland, San Diego and finally arrived in Nashville at around 7 pm the next day. My new friend and fellow steeler from Edmonton, Bob Blair, picked me up in style in a rented BMW, got our stuff situated and then prowled Broadway for some live music, it was a blast! We found this high energy retro country band with a wildman slapping the upright bass!

Fred Travers' Radio Tone & Time After Time

I was fortunate enough to find both of these releases on very slighty used cassette tapes for $9.95 + $2.00 shipping. Fred is a killer player and I love that tune Tulsa Chili Bop :) . Unfortunately, Radio Tone has long been out-of-print so I feel pretty lucky to have found a copy. I will be digitizing both of them this weekend if I can find the time.
