  • For other Bluegrass music fans. WOW

    Enjoy

    New Jersey's teen brothers A.K.A. Sleepy Man continue to drop unique and catchy songs anchored by the the driving banjo of 14 year old Jonny Mizzone. "Their act features sweet lyrics harmonized over driving tempos that crescendo before retreating, only to rise again. Their sound is topped with complicated melodies that fly up and down with fury as they put a youthful, rocked-out twist on Bluegrass.” Burton Snowboards / Burton Girls #sleepyman http://sleepyman.com

    That is great! It is good to know that there are kids out there that will keep America's music alive.

      Great link Rob - after seeing this one I immediately view some more Youtube clips including them playing Foggy Mountain Breakdown with Mike Huckabee. Hey you guys finally found something useful for a politician to do!!!

      One interesting note on your video. I couldn't help notice that these young fellahs who play great traditional America bluegrass also enjoy playing with some great looking Star Wars like model spaceships. Now if that isn't mixing old with new I don't know what is!

        Fantastic links. I suspect we'll be hearing these guys quite a bit more.

        Jim, the scary thing is that from their point of view Star Wars and Bluegrass are practically the same ancient era.

        It seems like roots music is on an upswing. Last night Don Fleming, Elvis Costello & Emmylou Harris were talking and playing folk songs on the Colbert Report and the Punch Brothers were on one of the late night shows recently (and in town here two days ago. I gotta check those schedules more often!)

        And somehow Steve Martin turned into a (mostly) serious musician!

              I have used all sorts of methods for putting on patterns. The only time I put a pattern directly on the wood is on Intarsia as the shaping process removes it. I only use blue tape under the pattern on very small projects.

              I Use clear removable contact paper (shelf liner) on the wood and...

              I agree about how it was advertised, but it is my own fault, I know better. Just for curiosity I may strip the paint off and see how true the plate is.

              The good thing is that while I had my saw blade off I cleaned it sprayed Crud cutter on it let it sit then wiped it off with a skotchbright...
