I’ve had a lovely time so far recording another duo banjo record with Damien O’Kane, with Steven Byrnes on guitar, at Pure Records in Yorkshire. More to come Sunday. Irish tenor banjo and bluegrass five-string in a Vitamix blender.

Found this last night in the hall closet. Alison gave these to all of us in the mid 90s.

My Rich & Taylor banjo, used on the entire So Long So Wrong album, just back from being worked on by Charlie Cushman. I haven't had it playable for a couple of years; I used it on my Hogan's House of Music record for Carter's Creek Pike and You Are My Sunshine in 2015.

A fun jam with Clay Hess at SPBGMA a couple of years ago - Clay is always so much fun.
Ron Block of Alison Krauss and Union Station Feb 12, 2019
It was a great time today seeing Charlie Cushman today with my son to pick up the Rich & Taylor I used on the entire So Long So Wrong record and both my Huber RB Models. They're all sounding at their best, thanks to Charlie! His Collings guitar sounds beautiful.

Today we're mixing finals of A Light So Fair: Peaceful Guitar Instrumentals. First up: Donne's Passage, using my 1938 Martin D28 Herringbone, joined by two amazing voices: Damien O'Kane and Kate Rusby. Here's a bit of it. Eric Uglum at the mixing helm.

Banjo wiz Damien O'Kane and I are beginning another duo-banjo album at Pure Records in Yorkshire in April. I am so looking forward to this and have already written three tunes. More to come. #cooperatingbanjos #BanjosInTheVitaMix #banjosblendwell #hereforthecraic

I think John Hartford's liner notes for Rounder 0044 may be the best liner notes ever. I was a 13 year-old kid reading these notes while listening to J.D. Crowe & the New South absolutely kick my wobbly-timing little butt all over Torrance. My first official action following said butt-kicking was to get a metronome and use it daily.

Always a good thing when your daughter can sing parts with beautiful tone.

Putting final touches on A Light So Fair, my new recording of original peaceful guitar instrumentals. Eric Uglum is mixing in California while I'm overdubbing folks here in Tennessee. Sierra Hull sang last week, Suzanne Cox was yesterday, Kate Rusby and Damien O'Kane are adding vocals in Yorkshire at Pure Records, and my own Erica Block will be adding her vocals today in my studio here. It'll be out in late Spring/early Summer. #wordlessvocals
Ron Block of Alison Krauss and Union Station Jan 27, 2019
Fabulous time at my studio having Sierra Hull sing on my new instrumental guitar record. Yes I know that sounds strange, because it's an instrumental record. But she was great. Next up: Suzanne Cox, Erica Block, Kate Rusby, and Damien O’Kane.

This bunch sure was fun last year!
