More detached notes

Bluegrass fans in Ireland can take a quick look at John Goad's latest Bluegrass Weather Report video feature on Bluegrass Today. Although it's expressly concerned with the Turkey Track Bluegrass Festival in Arkansas, the first minute or so of the video is made up of reminders of last week's IBMA World of Bluegrass - and just coming up to the minute mark, there's a brief clip showing Cup O' Joe in a jam session.
Coming a little closer to home: thanks to Gerry Fitzpatrick, organiser of the monthly Cabin Sessions in Dundrum, Dublin, for drawing attention to the online petition to rename Cork airport after Rory Gallagher. The blues are an important component of bluegrass music, and - if renaming it 'Chris Twomey Airport' is out of the question for the present - this petition is one that bluegrass fans can support.
