The Stoneman Family plays the blues

September 30, 2006

Since I’m boning up on the mandolin I found this performance to be a big inspiration. In fact, I’m looking at her hair, thinking, damn, what ever happen to Prell? I can just tell that that is what she uses. That bouncy curl at the bottom is unmistakable––a Prell girl, and a perky one at that. Seriously, all the family is playing is a bouncy blues progression, but this girl gets DOWN! Some of the chords she’s playing are OUT THERE. And she really doesn’t look like she’s on drugs or anything illegal. jfhancock calls this 60s surf bluegrass. Now that is a term I’ve not heard. You decide for yourself.
