    Just coming to appreciate bluegrass and old time country, we've been helping at the Prism in Charlottesville. My wife, who worked the merchandise table, asked Ron, "are you one of the musicians?". I had given her $26 to make change from, but she remembered $27. I walked up to Ron and said "we shorted you a dollar". We were delighted to find dry branch on youTube, and appreciate how polite Ron was to ignorant blue grass newbies.

    Hello to you all and greetings from England ! A quick message for Ron Thomason please. Ron, I just watched your talks about working with Ralph Stanley which you did back in 2016 at Grey Fox, I would just like to say that, as a huge Ralph Stanley fan here in England, though I did meet him on two occasions, I really enjoyed what you had to say, and also the emotion which was clearly evident as you talked about and relived those wonderful memories you shared with Ralph. If I manage to get across the the US in the near future, I will be sure to come and say hello if you are playing at a Bluegrass festival. Thank you Ron and best wishes. David Nixon.

    I love DBFS's music and I wish it was possible to have them come to an area close enough for me to me to go see them. Since I live in a 'rural' area that isn't too likely. God bless you all for the music.

    I'm listening to "Hillbilly at Harvard", via streaming here in Central VT; I know I first heard of the WinterHawk Festival on this show on WHRB. Cousin Lynn is being visited by Hugh Moffett, who has fond memories of WinterHawk, of course. He also mentioned a book by Ron, "Lonesome is a Car Up on Blocks". Is this available? During my years going to WinterHawk/Grey Fox, I always enjoyed the Sunday show. I appreciate the time and thought that Ron always put into his stories and speaking about life, the universe and everything. I'm expecting that this sort of thought went into this book--plus a chance to see drawings by Ron!

    Ron, I was at The Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival Sunday for the first time in 39 years. Thoroughly enjoyed seein DBFS again. As a longtime DC resident and frequent Gary Henderson listener I was fortunate to hear cuts off of the infamous Ray Davis basement tapes. I would love to take you up on the generous offer. If you could send me an address I can send you a prepaid self-addressed envelope. Thanks for years of great music. David

Two important news breaks for DBFS--both "good" and neither "fake."  Brian Aldridge is back in the band after a respite and in his own words, "Ready to go." 

 

Adam has moved on in his musical career and is pursuing the Selling Guitars, Banjos and Related Items line of work.  Look him up; he has the best stuff and frequent bargains.

 

 Also:  we have just released a new CD titled Tearin' Outta the Wilderness.  Be the first kid on your block to own one--see Store.

 

Finally:  It appears that we may be going into the actual entertainment business.  Ol' Black Bear Productions is in the final throes of editing their filming of a "made for TV" production starring DBFS et al described as "an unusual history of bluegrass music."
