A Rising Star - Evan Bolen

This youngster, thirteen year old Evan Bolen, is bound for bluegrass stardom. If you scroll below you see him performing with his grandfather and another gent (who has a long history of bluegrass playing behind him ). That night Evan played several instruments - an admirable feat in itself but all the more so because he played them all in one peice of music.

The top picture, the color picture, is an image he asked to be taken for his next album. Even dictated the style of shot that he old style setting and and all of he instruments that he plays displayed.

Bluegrass Barn, Bath, Indiana

The appreciative gent in the next to last picture above is 103.
If you scroll down further you will see Mr. Plowman - I cannot forget the name for the emphatic memory of his telling of it "PLOW! MAAAAN!" - dancing with a friend. He, never off his feet it seemed, is 93. There is something about those music loving lives it seems!
( also, if you scroll down to the post " Jive at the Jam" you will see, in color, Mr.
Plowman dancing with another old lady.

Just Jammin' at BCCHA

The project is, at bottom, about music bringing people together. All of the B&W images here and below are from one super place in SW Ohio, Butoer County Coon Hunters Association. There is a Friday night jam every single Friday night no matter what...not off for weather, not off for holidays.
The place is full of regulars who come there every week. Some travel a good distance to get there. Every Friday night has a different groups playing. it is a little bit like who shows up plays. Some players just show up to fill in.
There is a great country meal served at these jams and some people are there by 4 to get their tables and get started on dinner.

I will probably find more pics from this place ( that I LOVED!) but the next post will move on to another great venue

ps the little guy instructing a fellow player on a certain musical approach is a star to be for sure but more about him later.
