Lonesome Boys Show A Hit

The High and Lonesome boys show at Peabody's this Saturday was a hit!

Hundreds of people squeezed into the ale house to hear the boys play-they even dished out a couple of original numbers!

If you have ever looked-up "High and Lonesome" on a GOOGLE search you may have come across several other albums or musicians who utilized the name.
Here is a bit of a history lesson for you in case you ever wondered why.
This exerpt is taken from a Kentucky tourism Web Site about a founding father of bluegrass, William Smith Monroe.

Check it out!

By Bob Bahr

"High and lonesome describes not only Monroe's vocals but also the living conditions in the Appalachians. As mountain people sought work in distant cities, the old sad songs took on a new significance, and they were augmented by tunes about missing home and hearth. The titles of many bluegrass
standards—"I Wonder How the Old Folks Are at Home," "Blue Ridge Cabin Home," "I'm on My Way to the Old Home"—speak for themselves. The exiled mountain people responded not only to the homesick lyrics but to the life the music and the singing style evoked. Both the ebullient, fast-tempo instrumental and the sorrowful ballads provoked nostalgia, making the music more popular in the cities than in the country. That early form of bluegrass is kept alive by a vocal minority of musicians and fans who insist on its purity."

live show photography

Photos above are from the Hurricane Katrina benefit held at the Algoma Club-October 2,2005.

Remember that we have a gallery of fine photographs for your viewing pleasure.

If have taken photos at a recent show and you want to have them published...

just e-mail


and we will put as many as you want on there.

It would be great if we could have more photos taken by the public for the gallery..it would give a more typical audience perspective of live shows...Don't you think?

Songs with references to Oshkosh

De La Soul

image via the Web site of everyone's favorite Swedish radio station...

I was listening to a hip-hop online radio station and heard someone yell "Oshkosh" in a De La Soul song. I told my friend about this and he started rattling off all the songs that have references to Oshkosh.
I wanna make a list of this but so far I only know two.

1. "Say No Go" by De La Soul

2. Atmosphere (I don't know what song but apparently he made reference to Oshkosh in one)

Anybody know any more?
