  1. I hear those two have now gotten on the bus. Tea inspired them last year to check out what this music and friendship is all about. They contacted me (being the elder statesman for the group) and after I sent them some music they insisted I take them to a D&C show. We had a good time but they complained the music was too slow for their taste. We will see them on the rail tonight at Bear Mountain. Peace and Love, Doc
  2. Today I saw a this mandolin in the window downtown. So beautiful I thought it had to come along to Bear Mountain this weekend. I don't play instruments but I thoght someone, Mango or Sammy, might play it late Friday ot Saturday night. Peace and Love, Doc
  3. "So if you're going out to Carolina Then don't linger in New Mexico And if you think of the one there behind you Then you might not feel so alone" "And if the stars didn't shine on the water Then the sun wouldn't burn on the sand And if I were the man you wanted I would not be the man that I am" Peace and Love, Lyle Lovett
  4. Weather forcast for Black Bear mountain is looking good...high of 85 degrees, slight breese, and chance of rain about only five percent. We are in for a good little festival.
  5. Just another week to wait ....friends, music, fresh cold beer on tap, beautiful day,
  6. As MC said, best late night spots are down by the creek at Super 8 and the houses of friends on the mountain side. Less than two weeks now...13 days if I can count that high. Peace and Love, Doc
  7. We did away with satellite or cable several years ago and use an over the air antenna for most straight up TV. Prime brings us a few good shows while PBS provides a significant amount of what we watch. I enjoy the technical play of trying to improve the antenna TV signal to bring in more channels from the 60 to 80 mile away stations. When the weather conditions are right I can see 52 different channels but they are mostly trash not worth watching.
  8. Atlanta in October for me. Maybe a couple other shows too.
  9. You can't offended us any more. You have lost all your Ruddness. You have become too mild and modest. You are just a softy and can't dance with the best of us since the foot incident. . But we still love you, Rude as you are. Peace and Love, Doc
  10. Yes, this is a very beautiful version of a wonderful song. ....now I'm inspired to listen to this whole Yonder show. Peace and Love, Doc
  11. I keep looking for some other old folk to hang with. All you youngins are just to fast.
  12. I'm terrible about remembering set lists and sometimes get shows confused with even previous years but I seem to think that Sugaree was played Friday night at this year's Jubilee.
  13. Dino, It is so good of you to be drumming for DSO for twenty years. Let's hope everyone can keep it up for another twenty years. Peace and Love, Doc
  14. Billy Strings is probably the hottest show on the festival scene this spring. I'm looking forward to hearing him. Looks like Saturday is going to be a long day lasting way into Sunday morning. Usually when there is a bluegrass favored jamband after midnight the crowd is much thinner and there is better dance space for the likes of the late night hard core. I expect to see Chicago Mike there but its too late for Rudd.
  15. "doors" for cars etc is usually officially at noon Friday but sometimes opens earlier. Setting up camps inside grounds starts immediately after the "doors". People are in the area prior to that but not in the festival grounds. Security checks on cars occurs but it is not a big deal. Typically they have asked to open the trunk or other areas and do a quick look see. Usually they are checking for fireworks and "no glass bottles". They seem to mostly just ask the driver and probably base the "search" on how honest he or she appears.
