It’s been a busy month. Yes, I know it is only May 10th! But it’s been a busy month and only getting busier. I’ve stopped counting meetings, appointments, and responsibilities and now I’m just trying to make sure I don’t drop any of the proverbial balls.
Last week, on Thursday evening, was the annual silent auction for the Band Parent Association. We had great food, wonderful dinner music (the orchestra played), fantastic dancing music (the jazz band played), and of course there was the silent auction. I saw tickets for a bluegrass concert and made my bid. My husband was a sweetheart; he saw that I had been outbid near the end and put in a higher winning bid for me. ♥ This from a man who doesn’t especially enjoy bluegrass. And then he promised to attend the concert with me the very next night!
So on Friday night, we were at the concert (some of the youngest people there, LOL) and this band was incredible! When I finally get my iPod, I’m buying a bunch of their songs.
[Side note to people on eBay: please stop outbidding me!
I want an iPod!]
This video includes a couple of bozos who aren’t a part of the band, but they are hilarious… and a little disturbing.
Musical Monday is brought to us by Diane at Good Morning, Glory.
It’s the banjo player who does the scat talk on this song. He’s over 70 years old and his moves are something else!
We have a Bluegrass festival here every year. I’ve never been, but it draws some pretty good crowds.
Saw them at the Philadelphia Folk Festival years ago, lot’s of fun and talent in that group.
I’ve never been to a bluegrass festival. I would love to one day. 🙂 Love this video 🙂 Too funny. And I hope those people on Ebay quit outbidding you too 🙂
They seem like fun.. though those two guys make for a better audio than video. 😉 Glad you had fun, KC. 🙂
My second least favorite Clapton song…but these guys do it justice. I could definitely listen to that. Thanx for posting…
Really fun video, I don’t hear a lot of folk singing these days. What a treat and entertaining!
Great vide0 and a great blast from the past.
Thanks for sharing.
love to you
I am not happy./ I have no sound. How can you do musical monday when I have no sound?
That was hysterical! I would go with you ANYTIME to see some bluegrass! I LOVE it! That was a really nice thing for Hubby to do though!
