Nupsdog...LOL..The reason I posted those non-Hickory videos was to show you the others playing with Andy and each other and to ask you if they were former members since you didn't mention Billy or Sue in your response. I know they aren't in the band now, that's why I haven't followed their progress. I'll check out the "new" lineup, hopefully you got to see the Billy-Sue lineup back in the day since he's a friend. They were a great band.

I found them when I was trying out new fiddle tunes. I would do a search on a song like Angeline in the Live Music Archive and study the live versions. I don't play along to this version but listen to it often because it's so open, goes places. Give it a listen if you haven't already and have a few minutes.

OAITW tribute band? better yet! Great idea. I'm surprised by the many banjo players I meet who are influenced by Jerry's picking style. Then again, I live in SF.

Do they play sets like this show I posted? (below).

Please tell Billy his Moose guitar videos on youtube are much appreciated. He seems like a real down to earth guy for such a badass picker.

Ha ha, my bad, I misunderstood what you were saying. Yeah Sue and Danny are both former members of HP. Albeit Danny has sat in with them last year for one or two shows when it wasn't conducive for Mark to fly out for one night here and one night there. And as I said Billy still sits in with them whenever his schedule allows or paths cross.


The O&ITW tribute band is Garcia Grass and you can find them as well as Hickory Project on the Archive.
Have a listen to one of the better shows they played. Mike was just on fucking fire this night.

sjfgreenman, who is Andy????

Some more local flavors from up this way include a band by the name of Driftwood. They're really excellent group of folks and we've been fortunate enough to showcase each of them individually at our Acoustic Sessions Series. Each of them are very talented in other areas of music as well.

Here's there whole show from WSKG's Expressions Concert series.

Thank you all for posting so many great bands. I feel like I have bucket-loads of new material to listen to!

Oh and BTW Greensky put on one hell of a show in Burlington a few days ago! People who aren't into string bands just don;t know what they're missing!

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.
