Good News: We have some exclusive new videos for anyone in our bluegrass schools. It’s the ArtistWorks Bluegrass All Stars performing live at RockyGrass 2016!
The two songs are played back to back: “The Puppy Belly Dance” and “Fox Chase”. We also uploaded their performance of “State Line”. There’s a fun impromptu dueling guitar portion between Michael Daves and Bryan Sutton in that one, very entertaining! After that Mike Block leads the gang in “Johnny B. Goode”. Next we have their performance of “Chief Sitting in the Rain”. For anyone who plays mandolin, Mike Marshall teaches a great version of this in his school.
We added “I’m Blue, I’m Lonesome”, a classic bluegrass tune that Bill Monroe wrote with Hank Williams a long time ago. Michael Daves teaches how to sing both the lead and tenor vocal parts in multiple keys in his intermediate curriculum for those interested in adding this to your jam list.
Next we added another classic: “Way Downtown” by Doc Watson classic. It’s sung here by Bryan Sutton and Michael Daves in this lively performance. For the fiddlers out there, Darol Anger teaches this tune in his Beginner and Intermediate curriculum. For Mandolin pickers, Mike Marshall teaches this in his Beginner curriculum.
Then Darol Anger kicks off a great fiddle tune titled “Cherokee Shuttle”. There’s some fantastic soloing by Darol, Mike, Tony, Bryan and Andy in this installment and another all around team effort from the All Stars as they rock another tune with only minutes of prep time before taking it live to a full house.
Update: We just added another great tune from this performace: “John Hardy”. It’s a bluegrass classic and this version is not to be missed!
