"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 12/29/2013

2013 was quite a year for those Gibson boys...
Today is the last Sunday of 2013 -- hence, it was the day for the last "Bluegrass Cafe" broadcast for the year.  Generally, this last Sunday is a good one to look back at some of the favorite Bluegrass recordings released during the previous year, and recap some of the big Bluegrass events and award winners.  While we were able to do a bit of that today, we couldn't spend three hours doing it, as there was a UCONN Women's Basketball broadcast that began at 5PM, bringing our scheduled show time to 60 minutes.  However, through some shared airtime, we were able to begin our show today 30 minutes earlier, so we had a
One of the great Bluegrass
records we received in 2013
total of 90 minutes to play some Bluegrass records released in 2013 (or very late in 2012).  Obviously, we might have preferred the full three hours, but half of the time is better than least to my way of thinking...

In addition to playing songs from several 2013 recordings, we remembered the two newest members of the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame -- Tony Rice and the late Paul Warren, and included music from several IBMA Award winners from 2013:  the Entertainers of the Year -- the Gibson Brothers, as well as Female Vocalist winner Claire Lynch, Male Vocalist Junior Sisk, and Instrumental Group, the Boxcars.  

By the way, if you missed Tony Rice's very amazing acceptance speech at the September 26th IBMA Awards, you owe it to yourself to watch this rather lengthy YouTube clip:  

We sure do appreciate your support of our "Bluegrass Cafe" throughout 2013.  Hope you'll continue to join us in 2014 -- you'll have your first chance next Sunday when Jim joins you for three full hours of the show.  Join him, won't you?

And, of course, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
