Vestigial

I may have mentioned, we used to be really into bluegrass music, attending maybe a half dozen or so festivals each year plus a couple dozen concerts.

Through a complicated, and much too boring to recite here, route we have come over to old time music  -  but we still have one (vestigial) bluegrass festival the we attend each year at New Years at Jekyll Island, Georgia -
Here's a little taste of the first day's events.

First, the Gary Waldrep band -and a bit of Gary's clawhammer banjo -

One of my favorite bluegrass bands was always the Country Gentlemen, led by Charlie Waller.    Charlie died and his son, Randy, took his place.    Betty thinks Randy sings as well as his dad.    Me, I'm not so sure.

Here's the band -and here's part of a tune, Ages and Ages Ago.
