New on Disney Prime.....
Sharing a great memory of a wonderful Bluegrass Brunch at the Barn when most of "the regulars" were able to make it. At about 4:20 on this video 😋, Ron recorded our bonded bunch playing & singing "Angel from Montgomery," (which has been one of my fave songs since college). I've been so happy to be able to find such a wonderful group of people to play it with, whenever possible. OH, and I am so glad that Rob *finally* let me be the one to sing "I am an old woman."

R.I.P. John Prine - thank you, thank you, for the music.

Thanks to Bills Barn for hosting last night.
New Frustrations were superb. We had a great time.
To my Barn family: (yes, because you are a bunch of animals) thank you for such an amazing musical weekend, including letting me bang on your drums during brunch, Dave Saraiva, and for the technique tips, Jimbo 🙂 Thanks William Cordaro (and Sky, of course) for the hospitality, per usual.✌️🎶🍻

Hello from the Barn. I hope everyone is doing well. Folks have asked about events at the barn, so I figured I'd send a note out. At the moment, I'm not planning any private "public" events. While we are just now working through band practice sessions and how best to manage those responsibly, I do look forward to a proper gathering down the line. In the meantime, we will look to host a "live from the barn" session soon and, there is quite a bit on the music front happening here, as I work through my debut album and with Colonel Mustard and Joe Patten, we all work through the Colonel Mustard release. I've been part of a number of great virtual jams and gatherings and can see lots of folks around here getting some good things out on the music front. The energy seems to have inspired some "different" musical adventures for a lot of us as well. UJB has mastered the virtual "together but apart" live broadcasts. Some live shows are starting up this weekend in the area. Play on, play on....be well.

The State of The Barn

Two hundred and twenty eight years ago, on the eight day of January, then president George Washington delivered the first joint message to congress, what is now known as the State of the Union. It seems only fitting, at such a momentous time that, when some will celebrate and some will lament the address to be given by the current occupant of the oval office, we take this opportunity to present the first State of the Barn.

It was nearly one quarter of one score years ago in the ancient lands of the Wampanoag when the Barn doors opened, greeting all who love music and ringing out the melodies of the cosmos. What was once a sawmill had transformed.
The early pilgrims survived that first winter in a cold and smoky room, heated only by an unsafe and rather unhealthy hand welded tin wood stove. We pause to honor the years of our future lives that we sacrificed breathing in that air. And though the early winters were cold, the music kept us warm. We take a moment to reflect on Neighbor Dave’s great contribution to the community in rebuilding the central heating and reducing the toxicity levels.

There has been much debate about the facts and fake news in recent times and it is incumbent upon all of us that we put aside our predispositions and prejudices and open ourselves to truth.
Some of our constituents claim that the FACT is that the best music comes from the BlueGrass Brunch sessions. Others claim that it is Gonzo Fest. Some will say Colonel Mustard, some will say Dupree’s, Viper Allstars, The Sheeps, The Dead Jams, Antwerp’s Placebo, Smoke Break, Jazz Oddity, The Dribbs, or Open Mic. But let’s agree on the facts. None have ever said Mudslide. And Joe P will always say it has to be either Dupree’s, Jazz Oddity, Dead Jams or Antwerp's.
Still, others will say it was amateur comedy night even though there was no music played that night.
The facts: All will agree that the Halloween Costume Jam when Kilgore wore his skin tight naked costume and Mudslide Jim wore his baby costume complete with diaper, was the best costume night of the Barn.

We have overcome great challenges and trying times. There was a man falling into a fire. Then there was another man falling into a fire the following year. Then there was a woman falling into a fire the year after that. Maybe we should reconsider fire.

As we may be distracted by this other address tonight, let us remember, facts actually do exist, nothing will be said that will ruin the music and at this moment, we are not falling into a fire.

No Bluegrass Barn Brunch for January....Due to lack of parking (occupied by snow), the trailer being snowed in and the sub 0 temperatures, the first Bluegrass for 2018 looks like February. Please pass word onto anyone who may not get Facebook updates. May the music keep you warm.

Bill's Barn PRIVACY Reminder
While we've had a great run and very few issues at the barn, I feel like this is a good time to send a Bill's Barn Reminder out in hopes to not have to reset things. So, for all the "Friends" of the Barn, please remember this is a private backyard establishment, not intended for, nor open to, the public. So, please, do not share Barn events publicly on your page. You are welcome to invite any "good" people you are willing to vouch for and be responsible for. We have a very good thing going and would like to keep a very good thing going. If you know "good" people you would like to include in this scene, have them "like" or "friend" the Barn site and they will know what is on at the Barn. In that way, we will know who and how they are connected to the Barn and we'll continue to keep a good thing going without issues.
And...If music be the fruit of life, play on, play on.
