My oldest boy and I were both involved in a major breakdown on the farm.

The video shows it all...

Enjoy!

i'm guessing dad is the banjo player? just a guess

that's some fine pickin!

The IBMA is in Raleigh NC right now. Been going on for a few days, annual event.

What's that?

The International Bluegrass Music Awards......like the oscars or grammys for bluegrass.

In that world, it's a big deal. The 2 names that jumped out at me were Bela Fleck on banjo and Jerry Douglas on dobro but......i guarantee you, many of the worlds best musicians are in Raleigh today.

Thx for watching. Yes - I’m the dad. Very familiar with the IBMA since it’s inception. I think it was originally held in Owensboro KY. Being in my 4th quarter and a relic, I’m still glued to Monroe, Flatt, Scruggs, The Stanley Brothers, Reno and Smiley...:)

Yea, in my mind bluegrass is about the musicians, not so much the singers although the stanley brothers are/were something.

Nice you can play with your son, mines a drummer and that's tuff!

I can play a little 5 string banjo but my hearing is so messed up the twang of the banjo gets to me after a while.

I guess Bela Fleck is the premiere banjo player of our time?

Here is my favorite banjo song, it's a little different.

Some good pickin' there, Dad! I learned to play the banjo somewhat many years ago; even played in a little Bluegrass band for a while...but once I started to law school I haven't picked it up in 40 years. Doubt if I could even tune it today.

Reminds of when I would go to a good Bluegrass bar in central FL in the 70's. Good times.
