Subject: RE: Is bluegrass an attitude?
The sheriff Grayson in the song Tom Dooley was apparently a relative of G.B but one or possibly two generations preceding him. G.B himself was from Laurel Bloomery, Tennessee.

Is it Laurel Bloomery that you are mis-hearing on Train 45 Jerry ??
must admit I haven't checked it but I will.

If there are a lot you folks out there that were unfamiliar with people like Grayson & Whitter, Darby & Tarlton et al and are looking for more I would suggest you subscribe to the Old Time Herald, and if you can look up the excellent but sadly now defunct UK magazine Old Time Herald you will find some great research and info.
