The gospel according to Butch

(L-r) Roland White, Leroy Troy, Butch Robins, Ronnie McCoury

The BIB editor reports:

Thanks to Sean McManus for the news that the unmissable video series 'Butch Robins presents: Blue Grass music, its origin and development as a unique and creative art form' (see the BIB for 27 Jan.) is now complete.

The whole series adds up to several hours' viewing. I reiterate that every minute is worth it; but if you need any convincing, watch this five-minute trailer first, and then read Bud Bennett's two introductions (one short, one long) on Banjo Hangout. Links to the series are also on Butch's website.

Viewers who don't already have Butch's outspoken memoir, What I know 'bout what I know (2003) are likely to want it after watching the series. It can be got from Amazon. Thanks again to Tom Hanway (seen left with Butch at Derry a few years back; photo by Denise Hanway) for my first read of it.
