Accept no substitutes

Following the recent BIB post about the new Banjo Babes calendar, here's a photo which you will not find in the calendar, showing the Original Bluegrass Banjo Babe - Roni Stoneman. Roni and her husband Tom send their warm thanks to all who made their visit to Ireland in May and June such a memorable experience. A return trip is under consideration.

The BIB editor also recommends this YouTube video - in which the Stoneman Family band are prominent - as a glimpse of a time when country music and bluegrass had not become separated, and also as an introduction to an important archive of sounds and images from that time, compiled by Leon Kagarise.
