After listening to that first video of the Wailing Jenny's, you guys should check out Moira Smiley & VOCO. They're an excellent vocal group with some strings in the mix. I'll see if I can dig up some videos. :0)

Here ya's go....

Does anyone here know somethin' of the Great American String Band that Grisman used to play in? It was supposed to be like a bluegrass supergroup.

I wonder if taper documents of their shows are public domain, etc.?
Or if anyone could recommend an album of theirs?

As far as older newgrass goes, I do have two sick Grisman albums - "Rounder Album" & the pretty wild "Mondo Mando" from '78 & '80, respectively.

I do love me some RRE tho, I think they're a fine band with some heavy chops.

A Great American String Band show was on etree awhile back, you my want to check there. Old and in the Way is close to the same band and they may have some of their shows, too.

I sort of strayed that last post, was in an old timey mood though I know the topic is newgrass bands...so here are a some pickers who have made a splash the last few years, major players at the String Summit, Scott Law and Danny Barnes. Everyone should check out a String Summit, it's string band heaven.

Danny




Scott


From Scott's Portland string event...Here's a talented gal band


We REALLY love our strings out west
