With a little over three days remaining to vote, results are too close to call in JamGrass.net’s poll to select the best JamGrass festival. Northwest String Summit, Harvest, and John Hartford Memorial are the early leaders in the clubhouse. Longstanding, well respected festivals like Suwannee, DelFest, MerleFest, Telluride, and RockyGrass are poised to make a late push. Head on over to the poll and encourage your friends to do the same.
This first week in March has proven to be one of JamGrass.net’s most successful. Contributor Eric Rayburn’s review and photos from a recent Carolina Chocolate Drops performance earned praise. On Wednesday, a feature exploring bluegrass-inspired covers of Pink Floyd and The Dark Side Of The Moon received a lot of views as the album turned 41 on March 1st and guitarist David Gilmour 68 just yesterday. JamGrass.net also provided a review of a favorite record, the mandolin/guitar duo of Chris Thile and Michael Daves’ Sleep With One Eye Open.
Things will really start picking up this time next week. With Suwannee Springfest going down March 20-23, a lot of bluegrass talent will be making their way through our hometown of Atlanta as we celebrate Suwannee in Atlanta. We’ll have reviews of Infamous Stringdusters, Floodwood, Cabinet, Sam Bush with the Keels, and Greensky Bluegrass with the Keels. Also in the next few weeks, look for a site revamp as we update the layout and make room for some ads to help fund the effort of spreading the bluegrass gospel.
