    Ya'll know that music makes up a big part of who i am. I especially Love our local talent in Southern MD. I like all kinds of music. I dont label it. If i like what i hear i listen to it! Right now its the "California Ramblers" i want to talk about. I know the Band members but have never heard them play much. Here at the Schoolhouse the acoustics are amazing. My friends and Neighbhors Donnie & Ginny Lacey brought me two of The California Ramblers CD's. I put them in my CD Player and for close to 4 hours listened to them over again & again. Really listened. All 5 members are so talented. Great musicianship and singers. Joey Tippett has turned into one of the best singers i know. I havent played much Bluegrass. I only know a handfull of Bluegrass songs. But i know when i hear good music! And brother thease four guys along with Linda Joeys wife playing a great upright Bass are pure Badass! Joey has turned into a fantastic Banjo picker. Got to use the right words! Bluegrass folks dont play they Pick! Billy Thompson picks a great mandolin. Good to see him back with the band. Trampus has always been a great guitar picker & Jerry in my opinion is the best fiddle player around! Back when i was a youngster playing drums in a band with my father Webster, uncles Sonny & Tommy Ryce and good Family friend Oscar Buckler, we played a bennifit at the Coonhunters lodge for Jerry's dad Mac. Lots of folks showed up to pay there respect to a great musician and his family. I know i was glad to be a small part of it. I was 15 at the time. And got my first taste of Bluegrass music that day. I can say now without a doubt i am a Fan of "The California Ramblers"! Hope to hear you live somewhere soon! Happy "Pickin" ya'll

    Good morning, my name is Doug Sims and I'm with hickory hill bluegrass band, Joe stopped at our campsite at Arcadia and did some high harmony on the song "I've just seen the rock of ages" with us and we all thought it was a great job. I've seen Joe a lot at festivals , but not on stage, I'll not make that mistake again. I'll send a link to our website and would love to play at any show we can with the California Ramblers.
