How about concert photos?

Wow! Great pictures!! Thanks for sharing.

Earls of Leicester featuring Jerry Douglas at our favorite local venue “The Harvester” in Rocky Mount, VA. I have never seen (6) more talented string players at the same time having such a great time and just killing it at this performance. You could be indifferent to country, bluegrass and the like and still get very emotional at a show like this.

Also, it just dawned on me where they got their name. All music from Flatt and Scruggs as in Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs.

First discovered Jerry Douglas through Alison Krauss and her band Union Station.

They played up the hill from here in Nederland last winter. It was the bomb. As you say - they’re just SO good, you’re just left shaking your head in amazement : )

I caught Earls of Leicester featuring Jerry Douglas at Bijou Theatre Knoxville TN on Sunday night. Masterful musicians; their opening act “Twisted Pine” out of Boston
were excellent also. Anna Fong on flute was amazing.

I heard Christopher Cross live several years ago. What a horrible performance!

Yeah… I can’t argue with that. Very very low energy, and at first I wasn’t sure if he was going to be able to sing… But after a few songs he warmed up and his voice got better.

The worst concert of someone who made gorgeous music was Manfred Mann‘s Earth Band at a later time but already many years ago. They played like a bad cover band of themselves…extremely low energy, too.

Where’s Hank’s hair…?

Musta left it at home. Very cool show. Amazing medley was, “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?”/“Space Oddity”/“We Shall Overcome” with audience participation on the last go-round. Haden bridged into the Bowie with what must be some bird-calling skills, making beautiful sounds with her hands to her mouth.

Been to two of these events now, both wonderful.

May look like the same gig, but the first one was Ibragimova/Tsoy and the second Kalesnikov, but they all came to both and mixed and matched.

Best of the last evening was a performance of the Schubert Fantasia for 4 hands, that my wife videoed and is now her yoga theme tune.

Hearing that again in a few weeks, here:
