Banjos and buttons
I bought a random assortment of buttons at Wal-mart (they're top quality. really.) and I've been looking for button crafts. I really liked these.
I also really like bluegrass music (which I called bluesgrass for way too long).
I desperately want to go to a bluegrass festival! The excessive amount of cornbread, overalls, people of all ages, banjos and those large instruments with three (I think) strings that sound so plucky (probably because they are being plucked).
Here's a nice slow song by Great Lake Swimmers called Your Rocky Spine.
I prefer jazzier, more upbeat banjo music like The John Butler Trio or this rousing little number from Oh Brother Where Art Thou.
Anyone know any great bluegrass bands?
