    A Touch of Bluegrass Music

    We're into Bluegrass at my house. If anyone likes Bluegrass, you'll like this:

    Here is the very talented Sierra Hull, when she was in 6th grade. Alison Krauss has been mentoring her since she was discovered around 2001. Sierra is in university now on a music scholarship and has already released 2 albums. Neat stuff.

    Here.

    She's only slightly older here.

    Yeah, thanks. LOML has some friends playing in it, so we'll probably go.

    I think there's a good candy store in Coombs....isn't there? ;o)

    She's very good indeed.

    My fave mandolin player, Chris Thile, back when he was a kid:

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    When it comes to some modern raw bluegrass talent I have to say the Tuttle kids and friends.

    Keep in mind that about 15 second mark the little guy in the middle starts complaining that he wants to play faster!
