Every day in the summer of 1999, from July through August, I’d wake up to a disc I stole from a friend called The Bluegrass Sessions, featuring a handful of kickass bluegrass pickers on some originals and old standards. So when I saw nugs.net had a great recording from the Strawberry Mountain Festival right after that summer, I dove right in to the waters.
So here’s Bela Fleck, Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Mark Schatz, Brian Sutton, Gabe Witcheer pickin’ on some tunes from 9/5/99 in Yosemite, CA: You can stream the whole show here, or play these carefully selected songs I’ve posted — Ginseng Sullivan, C Medley, and Sailin’ Shoes > Crossroads > Sailin’ Shoes.
Bluegrass is really hit or miss, but I think you’ll enjoy these.
