The Travelin' McCourys and Jeff Austin Band

Recommended Posts

They are coming through here on Friday and I think it might be fun.  One set each by The Travelin' McCourys & Jeff Austin Band + a collaborative set of Grateful Dead. Traditional bluegrass fused with Jamgrass.

 

Has anyone seen this?

Not exactly. I saw the mccoury’s w/out Austin and it was a good show. I’d say it’s worth a check out.

Saw it last year at the Hartford festival. I wasn't impressed with Jeff Austin. When they were on stage together, there were too many players on the stage and it got watered down considerably. You'll get an Althea and a Cumberland Blues out of it. Might as well go if it's convenient and reasonably priced. We left have way through the collaboration set called "The Grateful Ball", but then again it was the last show after a 4 day festival.  Jason Carter (traveling  mccourys) is probably the best violinist around these days.  He recently sang a "For What It's Worth" with del sitting  in. It's on YouTube.

Saw them at Sweetwater in Mill Valley. If I Had The World To Give is also heavy in the rotation.  As is Loser.

 

I agree with the "watered down" comment, but if local it's definitely worth seeing.

    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie

      I once bought a kitten and he just kept meowing and meowing. He talked quite a bit. Then I started stringing up my guitar that evening, and he came over and started pawing at the frets, meowing meowing meowing. I looked at this overly talkative creature who was now trying to play his dad's guitar, and the name was obvious at once: Arlo.  12 years later, he still talks a lot. Love Arlo Guthrie. Such a unique and funny personality. Have seen him a few times. He always puts on a great show.

      A few years ago I had been in seriously deep dark depression.  I was essentially a walking dead.   The various chemistry the several doctors gave me did nothing. Then one day this song came on the radio…I had not heard it since my hippy days many years ago when we would sing it around camp fires, festivals and occasional church meeting.   Hearing this song broke me out of my depression illness.  I came alive again. Peace and Love, Doc

      Arlo was in Atlanta about a week ago. It was a very good show with his daughter, Sarah, and son Abe in the band. I've been fortunate to hear Arlo many times over the years and frequently play his CDs in the car.  The last couple years his shows often start with "The Motorcycle Song" as a video cartoon played on a big screen before the band comes out for the last chorus.

      TR, very cool you posted. I'm a big Arlo fan. Saw him about 91 or 92 play at Queen's College in Charlotte. It was a school theater holding about 500 or so people. He came out in tattered blue jeans, holey t-shirt, and barefooted. Just came to the front of the stage and sat down on the edge with his feet dangling. I don't even remember him using a microphone. He played and told stories for a couple of hours, including the motorcycle song. What a great memory that is for me. Thanks for taking me b
