  • How to Get to Jalopy from Manhattan Jalopy Theatre in Red Hook is arguably the best place in the five boroughs to find old-time and bluegrass music. But whenever I make the pilgrimage from the Upper West Side not only is it a major trek, but I get lost. In particular there’s one scary moment when Hamilton Ave. threatens to return you to ...
  • What’s Going On? Sorry if the calendar hasn’t been up-to-date recently. Due to tech trouble, I had to shut down for most of December, and pay some hefty penalties to my *premium* hosting company for innocently using too much bandwidth. What a shock! As it turned out, my former calendar plugin caused of it all, so I had to ...
  • Well May the World Go: Remembering Pete I had played the five-string banjo in just about every spare moment of my pre-medical education at U.C. Berkeley. Pete Seeger’s records were my main teacher. Deciphering the techniques in his How to Play the Five-String Banjo would always lead me to his home address inside the back cover. After many years of waffling, I ...
  • Song Brothers Song Eric and Leigh Gibson have opened up their hearts wide with They Called It Music (Compass Records, 2013), an exquisite album of aching songs recorded at the end of 2012, less than a year after the death of their father. The charging intuitive ensemble rings with lump-in-your-throat truths and Gibson trademark harmonies. The recording and mixing of the album ...
  • My Children and Yours Father Asbury used to play his guitar on Fridays during Religious Studies when I was in fourth grade. He’d strum with his fingers until they bled, while he led us singing “John Henry,” “The Battle of New Orleans,” and “This Little Light of Mine.” Church Bazaars in October always had Armenian folk music with ...
  • Quebe Sisters at the Triad There was nothing half-pint, half-assed or half-fast coming out of Texas on the Upper West side last night. If you saw Fort Worth natives, the Quebe Sisters at the Triad NYC, you’d know what I’m talking about. They shine like the sun. Pound like the rain. And let the yellow rose rest easy in retirement. ...
  • Leigh Gibson’s Bluegrass Soul Leigh Gibson is a modern day bluegrass soul. A keeper of stories sung and spoken, Leigh can turn summer roasted festival grounds into your grandparent’s cool screened backporch with avuncular qualities of a past age. The Gibson Brothers robust but nuanced sound is accompanied
  • Mandolinist Joe Walsh I first heard Joe Walsh at Caffè Lena in 2008. I loved his crisp-as-a-fall-apple sound. Sweet but with a kick. I start this post by focusing on the mandolin Joe acquired in late 2010 and his performance at Merlefest’s Mando Mania this year. His mandolin is a Gilchrist Model 3 built in 1
  • Bassist Mike Barber Last Friday when the Gibson Brothers performed at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts, Leigh Gibson mentioned a band member’s birthday. Bassist Mike Barber was turning 42. The audience spontaneously broke into “Happy Birthday” for the most youthful and senior citizen of the group. I had a big grin on my face when I ...
  • Choro House Concert at Jim’s Roots & Blues I know, it’s not American Roots or Blues. But there was no trace of disappointment in the house! Truth-be-told I’ve never seen a happier, more amazed audience. Thursday’s smokin’ hot house concert here featured Oregonian Tim Connell on mandolin, and Brooklyn’s Cesar Garabini on the 7-string guitar…
  • Fiddling Clayton Campbell Clayton Campbell, native of the Bluegrass State and the Gibson Brothers’ gifted fiddler since 2004, plays impeccable old-time country and bluegrass. His honed intonation, vibrato, double stops, and experience since childhood on the stage of the Kentucky Opry have made him a link in the chain of the band’s many grooves. With Clayton on ...
  • Eric Gibson’s Instrumental, Vocal and Songwriting Genius While I hesitate to dedicate a single blog to the exceptional talents of one brother, Eric and Leigh Gibson are artists of such creative depth and musical honesty that I am unable to give them both their due in a single go. As the title pronounces, this one is devoted to Eric. Banjo and Guitar: Eric’s ...
  • Letter from ZydecoLaura Local Cajun/Zydeco scene Update: It is becoming increasingly difficult to produce these events.

The Sugar Loaf Music ...

  • Marty Godbey on the Music Life of J.D. Crowe J.D. Crowe mentioned the biography that Marty Godbey has written about his life of music at the recent concert he and the New South gave at the Emelin Theater in Mamaroneck, New York. He had twelve copies of the book with him, all of which sold at intermission. Kristin gave me a copy of Ms. ...
  • The Manhattan Valley Ramblers Return to Rockwood Music Hall Bill Christophersen and I formed the Manhattan Valley Ramblers in late 2006. Kristin and I were living at the corner of Broadway and West 103rd at the time so the name fit well with our location. Bill and I played our first gig as part of Make Music New York in the festival’s ...
  • J.D. Crowe & The New South at the Emelin I am still trying to figure out why J.D. Crowe’s banjo playing is so especially ear-grabbing. His right forearm perches gently on the banjo’s edge with hand at a downturned angle tented over the five-strings. The left hand’s hammer-on’s, pull-off’s, and slides have so much sustain that I look for an effects pedal that an ...

  • Sign the Petition to Save Caffe Vivaldi! Tuesday is Bluegrass night at Caffe Vivaldi in Greenwich Village, featuring the Six Deadly Venoms as well as others. But it seems there may be problems afoot, perhaps not unlike those affecting our late, departed Banjo Jim’s. After 28 years, Caffe Vivaldi faces the serious business of lease renewal, and negotiations are under way for a ...
  • Your Weekend of Banjo in New York City In compiling Part 4 of my five-installment series of articles published in the New York Times about old-time and bluegrass over the past ten years, I was impressed by the number of banjo players featured. This coming post-Halloween weekend appears to be a mini-extravaganza of banjo on television and at local venues. No longer the ...
  • Rising as They Sing: The Gibson Brothers Inspired Performance at Emelin I have been invited to blog for the Emelin’s 2011-12 Bluegrass Series. It’s fitting on many levels that the first band of the year’s season was the Gibson Brothers. My earliest post on Jim’s Roots and Blues recounted the first time I heard them; the second time I heard them perform was at the Emelin ...
  • Bluegrass Legends Make History in New York City December 8, 1962. Clapping, cowbells, an uproarious clamor. Carnegie Hall sounds packed with listeners, warmed by the “opener” Merle Travis and enthralled by stars of television and the Grand Ole Opry, Flatt and Scruggs. The appreciative crowd makes itself known after each solo, joke and introduction. Paul Warren’s smooth ‘n tinged with rosin-y grit chucks ...

  • Top Ten Reasons for Leigh Gibson to Be IBMA’s 2011 Male Vocalist of the Year It’s probably taboo to come up with a list like this weeks before the 2011 IBMA Awards in Nashville.

I will also say that all of the nominees for Male Vocalist of the Year are highly deserving. ...

  • One More River to Cross In search of old-time music at my first bluegrass festival, the California Bluegrass Association’s Father’s Day Bluegrass Festival in 1993, I fell into the expeditionary forces of the “Lewis and Clark” of clawhammer banjo: Rick Abrams and Edwin Lacy. While walking around the festival I heard the unmistakable lope of slowed-down frailing on open-back five-string ...
