DVD, ALL*STAR BLUEGRASS CELEBRATION
All*Star Bluegrass Celebration lives up to its name as it captures an historic gathering of the living legends, the biggest stars and a new generation of bluegrass artists, all in one remarkable hour from the stage of the revered Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, on January 16, 2002.

Hosted by Ricky Skaggs, the show opens the first of three segments with a blistering traditional mountain song, "Shady Grove" from the bluegrass trailblazer and his award-winning band, Kentucky Thunder. Country superstar (and sometimes bluegrass picker) Vince Gill teams up with new Grand Ole Opry member and bluegrass ambassador Del McCoury and his band for a classic gospel number, followed by CMT and Grammy favorites Alison Krauss + Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas, who offer a riveting performance of the video favorite, "Let Me Touch You For A While."

Act Two presents bluegrass legends who continue to make compelling music today. Earl Scruggs, whose 5-string banjo helped to define the bluegrass sound during his years with Bill Monroe and His Blue Grass Boys and Flatt & Scruggs before branching out into pioneering country-rock with the Earl Scruggs Revue, knocks his signature "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" out of the park. The original "Man of Constant Sorrow," Ralph Stanley, brings his haunting high lonesome sound to center stage, much as he did when he first recorded the song more than 50 years ago as a member of the legendary Stanley Brothers—and, in a fresh twist, he welcomes country star Patty Loveless, a true Kentucky girl whose coal-miner Dad taught her to love mountain music, for a charming duet on the classic "Pretty Polly," before concluding the set with a spine-tingling accapella rendition of "O Death" that brings the house to its feet.

Act Three captures both the roots-embracing and forward-looking aspects of the genre, opening with a tribute to Monroe (1911-1996), known as the Father of Bluegrass, that includes his immortal "Uncle Pen," performed by Skaggs (who took the song to the top of the country charts 20 years ago), Loveless, and country roots-rocker (and banjo player) Travis Tritt. In a nod to the music’s appeal to musicians of every genre, Skaggs brings on pop-rock star Bruce Hornsby to pick some hot bluegrass piano (!) on a traditional number, "Darlin' Corey," popularized by Monroe. Representing an important part of the bluegrass future, Nickel Creek follows with a jammin’ "Seven Wonders." The hour ends with a stage full of pickers for an all-out, all-star jam session finale: Monroe's fiery instrumental, "Rawhide."

All*Star Bluegrass Celebration lives up to its name as it captures an historic gathering of the living legends, the biggest stars and a new generation of bluegrass artists, all in a remarkable concert from the stage of the revered Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, on January 16, 2002.

CD TRACK LIST

CD, MONEYLAND
This timely multi-artist collection that offers a hard-hitting look at today's economic injustice features a thoughtful selection of 6 new (or newly recorded) songs, mixed with 8 neglected gems and classic favorites. Framed by excerpts from 2 of Franklin Roosevelt's Depression-era "fireside chats," Moneyland revitalizes country and bluegrass music's connections to the lives of hardworking people in ways that honor the past, look to the future and challenge listeners to act in the present. [The “fireside chats” were a series of 30 evening radio speeches given by President Franklin D. Roosevelt between 1933 and 1944.]

Moneyland's musical bookends are found in Bernard "Slim" Smith's Depression-era classic, "Breadline Blues," as the original 1931 recording at the start of the album is matched by a new "Breadline Blues 2008," featuring The Del McCoury Band, the legendary Mac Wiseman, Grammy-winner Tim O'Brien and the harmonies of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. Between the 2 versions of this classic song, the collection explores the hardships of rural and small town working people and their families.

Familiar names and songs abound -- the Del McCoury Band brings 2 original songs to the table; Country Music Hall of Famer Merle Haggard supplies the 1973 classic "If We Make It Through December" and the more recent "What Happened?," which appeared on his McCoury Music bluegrass debut of last year; and the set includes Emmylou Harris's and Rodney Crowell's glistening take on his "Mama's Hungry Eyes. But there's also room for Dan Tyminski's 2001 recording of "Carry Me Across The Mountain," based on a true Depression-era story, Haggard and Marty Stuart's searing "Farmer's Blues," Chris Knight's "A Train Not Running," a more recent tale of economic devastation, and more. Yet whether new or old, bluegrass, country or something else, each song contributes to the profound impact of Moneyland.
