In spite of the fact that bluegrass music is often about train wrecks and mamas dyin' I tend to think of it as happy music. Maybe that's because I was having such a great time while I was at the Darrington Bluegrass Festival from July 15th through the 17th. Here's a video I took of my favorite group, Deadwood Revival:
... I love these guys.

The performances were all terrific but the part I like the best is wandering through the campground in the evening and dropping in on the jam sessions. It's a just feels like a privilege to play along with people when there's someone in the group who is playing a song because they love it.
Now, don't you wish you'd been there?
