For Your Viewing Pleasure

CaseyHere are some video clips for your viewing pleasure.

First, here is a look at a slow jam from Kaufman Kamp a couple years back. I couldn't believe someone actually posted a slow jam, but it's kinda neat. I can only stand to hear about 45 seconds of it myself, but it will give you a good idea of what goes on: calling out chords so everyone can follow along.

Next, a blast from the past. Red and Murphy and Co. sing "Mtn. Laurel Man" from 1980. Murphy's sister Nancy sings the lead. I especially like the comments from Nancy's current students (she's a high school math teacher). My favorite one is "dude mrs pate".

Here are Chris and myself singing his song "One Foot In the Grave" at an IBMA showcase two years ago:

And here's us with our now-defunct band The Two-Stringers (in this case Tyler Grant and Casey Grimes) singing "Walkin' West to Memphis":

    Hi Casey

    Enjoyed the Vid’s. Do you have any of your trip to Scotland you’d care to share ?

    Hey, hey, these are great video clips. You and Chris can really sing, can’t you!? Way to go! In the third clip down I couldn’t help noticing the bridge on Chris’ mandolin. It’s a custom/homemade one, right? Did Chris make it or was it crafted by none other than the old pro himself? That 3rd video is really good but the mandolin bridge, WOW!, stole the show (just kidding, honestly, just joshing with you). You and Chris are the main attraction on stage there, but that’s a non-adjustable mandolin bridge, right?

    Casey, two kids here (one just turned 15 and the other will be 17 in Feb.) just watched your IBMA Show Case video clips and they are impressed by what they saw and by your level of skill. Of course, they enjoyed Red & Murphy and Co. too.

    Hey Steve,

    You’re right, that’s one of Red’s bridges on Chris’s mandolin. Red has, of course, written about his bridge designs and trials a lot here on this blog, and you can order them on our website.
