Bluegrass Week

I had a great time at Mars Hill Bluegrass Week last week. Had great students, heard great music, played some great guitars, got to hang out and jam with Roland White. The week was almost perfect for me. Back home now and back to my usual boring routine life.

He saw and got to know everyone in bluegrass and country music. He said his favorite memory of being there was when Jerry Lee Lewis played…See More
