A wedding? Don't sing 'I cried again'

The BIB editor writes:

The award-winning Chris Jones (left) has made his mark as singer, songwriter, guitarist, bandleader, broadcaster, and commentator on bluegrass matters. His column on Bluegrass Today is a must-read every Wednesday, and links to his advice on touring abroad are included in the BIB's THINKING OF TOURING IN IRELAND? page.

Chris's piece yesterday is based on his theory that many bluegrass fans don’t listen to the words of songs. This has been tested in the field, and is now extended to assert that many singers aren't paying attention to them either. To cover the possibility that someone at a gig may actually be listening, Chris (also on Facebook) gives a list of songs to avoid in certain circumstances.
