Howdy Howdy Howdy!
Try as I might,for the life of me I could not dredge up a story of my past musical adventures for the welcome column today. Like a lot of other folks in the CBA. I have been concentrating on our kickstart campaign for the last month. It has consumed virtually my every waking moment since I got home from the festival in June. First and foremost I would like to point out that this kickstart campaign is not about me. It is about initiating a way to raise funds for the California Bluegrass Association in the future to support a lot of our programs for the young people coming up that want to learn how to play our music. My name just happens to be on it,due to the fact that I wrote the column, JDs Bluegrass Kitchen for our monthly newspaper for 28 years. The future of bluegrass music is in the hands of our young people who want to learn how to play this music. I beg of you please, please, please, for the sake of our young people now and in the future, please tell all your bluegrass friends about our kickstart campaign and why they should donate to it. Not only will you get a good warm feeling inside for donating to this program, it is also tax deductible, 100%. And if that doesn't give you a warm fuzzy feeling inside, I don't what will. Could this be called groveling and begging? You damn right it is! Bluegrass music has been a lifelong passion for me, and if groveling and begging is what it takes to ensure the future of our young musicians learning this music, then count me in every time..
