Foggy Mountain Breakdown

Release the AWESOME...



What I love about instrumental bluegrass, and especially about great banjo music, is it always conveys, to some degree, the feeling that all hell is breaking loose. I always imagine some Green Acres shit like 69 hound dawgs chasing down a cat in a fancy cotillion or something, but I just love the feeling. It's like letting go completely. I want to be the first buddhist banjoist.

I really like bluegrass music as well, Rev.
Here is one of my favourite groups that put a modern spin on it,
mainly it's electric bass and other instruments, as opposed to just having them miked.

Leftover Salmon is the group and the describe themselves as "Polyethnic Cajun Slamgrass" LOL....

In good smoker fashion... here is their 'Fogdown'


It takes them a few ticks to get into the song.



I couldn't resists doing a search on Buddhist Banjoist though... curiosity got the best of me this morning.

Heng Sure is a man you'll be interested to know about I think, especially since he comes from the Chan tradition as well.

Quote:
He is a senior disciple of the late Venerable Master Hsuan Hua, and is currently the director of the Berkeley Buddhist Monastery, a branch monastery of the Dharma Realm Buddhist Association. He is probably best known for a pilgrimage he made for two years and six months from 1977-1979. Called a three steps, one bow pilgrimage, Rev. Heng Sure and his companion Heng Chau (Dr. Martin Verhoeven), bowed from South Pasadena to Ukiah, California, a distance of 800 miles, seeking for world peace.
He released an album in 2008:


Picture American Buddhist folk songs,
pioneering a new wave of Western Buddhist culture.
Socially awake, talking about mad American Beef Cows, peak oil, and cause and effect, Rev. Heng Sure has been called "the Buddhist John Denver."
These are clean, homespun tunes featuring guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle and dulcimer.
The musicians helping out include some of the Bay Area's most experienced acoustic players: Henry Kaiser, Alan Senauke, Paul Hostetter, Josh Michaell, Robin Petrie, and Brian Godchaux.

Paramita is the album discussed above.

You can listen to clips of Paramita here.

how THE FUCK do I embed youtube videos?!!?!

Fell in love with a lot of bluegrass musicians this summer-From leftover, to mountain sprout, whom I tried to link to above. Del mcroury band performed nashville cats as I was peaking on 2c-p, and lulled me into a hypnotic trance.



I was coming up on 25i during leftovers' set, one of the most unforgettable experiences of my life. Dude picking on the mandolin was an absolutely insane ball of twisted energy.

Oh yeah, Targhee festival, anyone should go if they're in the neighborhood in early august.

He's got what you call a 'high lonesome voice'.


Never thought anyone but Richard Thompson could do this well.

And if this one don't stir ya, you're just dead inside...
