A “heads” up from Palmetto Blue fiddler, Ashley Carder:
“Just an FYI for any Deadheads that may be out there. Palmetto Blue band member and lead vocalist Chris Boutwell may be sharing a few anecdotes from his California days as a full time musician in the late 1960s and early 1970s when he was a musical acquaintance of Jerry Garcia and would jam with him and open shows for him. Tune in on Thursday!”
“I just really like the mix that your band has. It has the right mix of all the good stuff – old fashioned bluegrass standards as well as rarely heard numbers, music veterans mixed with fresh young voices, old time fiddle and banjo tunes, old fashioned gospel songs, and even a bluegrass take on a Beatles song. I really like your sound!”
