(click banner to see the schedule)
Guess the top five acts on my list of "must see" artists
and win a CD by one of those artists, my choice.
( in the event of multiple correct guesses, winner will be
chosen with extreme prejudice )
You can leave your guess in comments or, e-mail me.
If you leave your guess in the comments, be prepared
to give me your mailing info off site.

Time is short, act now !
_______CONTEST FINI_______
Well, the musical weekend is behind us now...
A fine weekend indeed.
The atmosphere downtown made it seem
like a different place. People came from miles
around and enjoyed the novel ability to stand
with one foot in Tennessee and the other in Virginia.
As for the contest, I had two very close
guesses with a correct three out of five.
No one got all five...
These were the top five on my list of artists
to see.
There were several bands in the second tier
selection process that could have easily been
bumped up a notch but, I had this list set
before the contest and I'm sticking to it.
Click on the links to each and learn why...
More later.

Your top 5? I'll have to guess Woody Pines, Tennessee Mafia Jug Band (OK, this is just one that *I* want to hear), Otis Taylor, Mike Marshall Trio, and Blue Highway.

Doc Watson - Of course
Stanley Clarke - No doubt
Cherryholmes - This should be
Dixie Bee-Liners - Love the name
Hart Creek - Locals in your woods
New Riders of the Purple Sage - WOWZA!!

Bryan Smith said...

Darrell Scott
Sam Bush
Doc Watson
Scott Miller & the Commonwealth
New Riders of the Purple Sage

Darrell Scott - duh
Scott Miller/Commonwealth - no brainer
Sam Bush - helloooo...
But then things get tricky.

I'm gonna go with the Dan Tyminski Band and the Infamous Stringdusters.

Although I'd pick the Grit Pixies, the Corklickers, and the Carolina Chocolate Drops based strictly on their names!!

Somebody is hungry! :)

And I listed Stanley Clarke! HAHAHA Double take, double take.

Try Ralph Stanley. Yeah.

I noticed that. -)

Believe me, if Stanley Clarke was going to be there, he would have been in the top five.

So far, I have two people with three out of the five correct.

Thanks for playin'

"So far, I have two people with three out of the five correct."

Dang, you're not giving up which three songs are correct OR the which two lucky ducks know your taste. Give it up.
