A treat for traditionalists

The BIB editor reports:

Memories of last weekend at the welcoming Pikers Lodge Hotel in Lough Gowna, Co. Cavan, include agreeing with Mr Sean McManus on how hard it's getting to find bluegrass that sounds like it used to. Well, here for Sean and others with similar taste is a song by Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice, from their latest CD The heart of a song, which not only states the problem but provides a cure. The title is 'A far cry from Lester and Earl'.

You can see the band doing it on stage during the Uncle Pen Days at Bean Blossom on YouTube, with a fervent reaction from the audience; better for hearing the words is another YouTube video, which combines the audio track from the album with a series of evocative photos from the past.
