Bluegrass Messengers begin performances
Sunday, May 17, 2009 11:10:52 PM
The newly revamped Bluegrass Messengers played thier first gig at Ahoy Fish Hutt on Bardstown Road last Sat. May 16. We have potential but haven't played together long. We are practicing once a week at Highland UMC on Thursday.
I have two banjo students playing banjo and another one that will also help out soon. None of them are advanced enough to do many solos. Steve Watkins is playing mandolin and he's a fairly good picker and a fine instrument maker. Greg Newton played stand-up bass plus we have several back-ups for bass that can fill-in. I'm playing guitar and singing and Meredith Scott is singing. Meredith has a good voice and knows many of the gospel tunes, she's also harmonizing and singing the second parts. There's a fiddle player that might start practicing and performing soon too.
We'll be playing next Friday at Ahoy Fish Hutt on Bardstown Road from 6:00 to 8:00.
See you there,
