    Happy 50th bday to DB 2.0

    Yes this was a gut winding blow. Hard to accept. We found out just as we were crossing the border. Could have been way worse. About 10 of us diverted to Nelson Ledges in Garretsville Ohio. One of the most beautiful venues I've ever been to with big trees and amazing swimming and Sandy beach. Leftover salmon plays tonight and infamous stringdusters are tomorrow night. So there's that. But ya. Tough pill to swallow. Hearts out to those who ended up sleeping in a ditch or equivalent. Curveball alright

    Not much chatter about this as of late... I imagine some are leaving today. We are getting on the road tomorrow. In addition to the music I look forward to festival yoga...always extra special energy, resets my scrambled mind straight and a relief from all the walking (which I actually didn't find too bad...most festivals I go to involve mountainous terrain so this is flat and easy by comparison and beats walking through the craze and congestion of the streets of Toronto that I do all the time without a second thought). I am supremely jealous of anyone who ends up under some trees though. Hope to see many of you and safe travels!

    CRB -Kitchener

    Hey ya, I was there. I thought they put on a fantastic show. I was a more than a little worried about the opportunity for proper CRB collective vibe given the size of the tent and the rule of no standing anywhere under it...that was a little deflating and over the top when you bring in a band like that. Yet they just did what they do, and the pocket of folk that I was in was successful in disrupting the rules and were able to get our groove on....security eventually gave up and just rolled with it. Helped that Chris himself was encouraging people to remember that it was Saturday night and people should feel free to get up and dance. I was pleasantly satisfied with the length of set given it was a festival timeslot and a free show at that! I also found it a little odd that they didn't do an encore as there seemed to be 10 minutes left. I heard some grumbles that there were more people there than what was expected so cops/security wanted to start clearing the place out. But who knows... Very few bands consistently have me walking away with the level of feeling that I have every single time I see them. Can't wait for fall tour

    Don't really have the words today on this 23rd anniversary. Feeling it more than ever for some reason. When the last rose of summer pricks my finger, And the hot sun chills me to the bone, When I can't hear the song for the singer, And I can't tell my pillow from a stone, I will walk alone by the black muddy river, And sing me a song of my own, I will walk alone by the black muddy river, And sing me a song of my own. When the last bolt of sunshine hits the mountain, And the stars start to splatter in the sky, When the moon hits the southwest horizon, With the scream of an eagle on the fly, I will walk alone by the black muddy river, And listen to the ripples as they moan, I will walk alone by the black muddy river, And sing me a song of my own. Black muddy river, roll on forever, I don't care how deep or wide, if you've got another side, Roll muddy river, roll muddy river, black muddy river, roll. When it seems like the night will last forever, And there's nothing left to do but count the years, When the strings of my heart begin to sever, And stones fall from my eyes instead of tears, I will walk alone, by the black muddy river, And dream me a dream of my own, I will walk alone, by the black muddy river, And sing me a song of my own, sing me a song of my own.

    Happy birthday Bouche

    Aww well hard to follow that brotherly love but I certainly remain grateful for the little forum that could. Happiest of circles around the Sun and thanks for keeping this alive.

    Circles Around the Sun (Neil Casal)

    Along that vein, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood are playing for free next Sat. Aug. 11th in Kitchener at their Blues fest. So at least I get a little taste of Neal and Adam that way. First time CRB has come to Canada...actually scratch that I think they played New Brunswick a couple years ago.

    Makin' me proud, Chatham!

    I shudder at the thought of the condition of the inside of that Santa suit after yesterday's heat.

    Jazz Fest Report - Bella Tagaq-a

    Thanks for sharing these! It's been too long since I've seen Bela. And Jerry Douglas for that matter. You painted a nice picture

    World Fiddle Day!

    I LOVE Spirit Family Reunion. Had the pleasant surprise of being introduced to them when they opened for Trampled by Turtles a few years back. They really grabbed me. I saw them again a year or two later however the fiddle player above (who has some incredible wailing vocals that aren't fully displayed in that clip) was no longer with them. I don't know if that was a permanent change or what but I was really disappointed as he was an integral part to their mix in my opinion. They don't seem to have a lot of tour dates...was wondering if they were still a band, but it seems a handful of shows in August are on their website. Salt of the earth stuff...
