New Postings on YouTube

I've just posted seven new videos on my YouTube channel, including Joe Walsh's wonderful mandolin work with the IBMA 2012 Entertainer of the Year Gibson Brothers on Tennessee Blues and Sammy Shelor's IBMA 2012 Instrumental Recorded Performance of the Year "Angeline the Baker."  The channel now has 561 videos we've taken at festival over the past few years. It has succeeded beyond my wildest imaginings, thanks particularly to the Josh Williams "bird" video, which has accumulated more than 1,700,000 views. Here are two of the new videos, but do take some time to browse the collection.

As bluegrass performances slow down for a couple of months and the holidays take over our attention, I like to look back on our bluegrass year, going through our photographs to pick some of my favorites. Here's a collection of pictures from the first four months of our bluegrass year in no particular order.  Hope you enjoy them.
