To those who might enjoy hearing what music might have sounded like when the original Presidio Chapel was built, I invite you there tomorrow evening, May 17th for a concert of acoustic music played on fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar, and bass. I and the Very Lonesome Boys are having a DVD release party, starting at 8 PM. We're continuing the celebration of my 50 years in the bluegrass music. Strings by candle light in an authentic setting!
Call the Trust office or visit BlueGrassWest.com for further info.

One side note. I did return to UCSB in 1962, graduated in Biological Sciences in '65, and did graduate work on chemotaxonomy of turpenes in pine resins for two years, before absconding for Nevada in the Scragg Family's red, white, and blue school bus.

Many thanks to everyone that came out last Friday to share some music at the Lobero. I will always treasure that evening, both for the music and for all the friends - musicians and audience alike - that took the time to participate.
Love you all!

Thanks, Ethan for your nice article. This Peter guys seems like someone I'd enjoy meeting. :-) I do recall our interview a few weeks ago, and I'm amazed at all the things you managed to wring out of me via a cell phone. You forgot to mention the very wet circus tent! A couple of corrections:1) My wife of Bluebird times was Marianna Mashek, who cooked up amazing amounts of Borscht and Piroshki and did yeoman work with graphics in those pioneering days. 2) My friend Gilles will still be out on the road by Friday, and hence will miss our on-stage party this time around. I'm saving some Freedom Fries for him.

Is Mr. Donelan a professional theater critic?
I can guarantee that Frederick Loewe would be astounded to learn that his composition, “I Could Have Danced All Night" is now classified as a waltz! Of course, the relegation of any mention of the songs in a review of a *musical* to the last paragraph in the article might suggest that Mr. Donelan is not the most musical of theater critics.
I would suggest that he visit www.FrederickLoewe.org for further enlightenment on the accomplishments of Mr. Loewe.

"I understand you play bluegrass music. Can you describe the genre?
Americana. This genre became relevant thanks to the success of O Brother Where Art Thou? Even though it has been in existence for quite some time, it wasn’t until recently that it became relevant in the mainstream. [It’s] kind of like white man’s jazz."-----------------
Then I suppose I liked bluegrass when it was irrelevant . . . may Mr. God protect us from the "mainstream"!

Gene and her husband Hallock were both community resources and will be greatly missed. My condolences to their familiy.
As for "loyalty oaths", they are still being used, for example, by SB Adult Education. I used to teach music classes there in the 70s (no oaths then), but a few years ago, when a friend asked me to take over an instrument class, the work application included one! I returned it saying that I wished to reserve my choice on overturning the US Govt. on a weekly basis, thank you very much. So I haven't taught at Adult Ed for 25 years now.
