Subject: RE: Really Good, Unknown Guitarists
Ok thanks for the update, last I knew Mtn View had a grant to promote pre 1940 music or something like that and it was at the same time trying to become a mecca for retirees so most of the stuff on the square was Bluegrass and the Old Timeees were almost banned. One picker explained to me that the OTs used have fist fights with the BGs and that put an end to the OT Fiddle Banjo sessions there.

Suppose the next thing will be Theaters on the Square with Garth singing ( correction bawling like mooooo kmooo hooo hoooo ) Gospel. Oh well seemed a good idea for a while. It will be the next Branson.
