This is kind of "3 degrees of separation" on a Bill monroe mandolin song

Last edited Wed Sep 16, 2020, 03:56 PM - Edit history (2)

This is Noam on Banjo playing his interpretation of Kenny Baker's fiddle interpretation of Bill Monroe's mandolin melodies



Kenny's version of Monroe's Hornpipe



Bill's 1958 song that started this ruckus

6. The kicker is that Kenny played Bill's mandolin parts on the fiddle

Adapting the music to make it work.

40 years later, Noam reworked the songs so that he could play Kenny's fiddle parts on the banjo.

Which is actually a very different piece of music than if he had just adapted Bill Monroe's mandolin part to the banjo.

8. Only thing I can add

is that Noam Pikelny is a heckuva name for a bluegrass musician! But I cut my teeth on bluegrass in Madison, WI, at a little place called Glen and Ann's....

10. And I knew

bluegrass musicians named Kalakian, Lengacher, and a few other pretty non-traditional names...

11. very nice indeed. Bluegrass is such an interesting and intricate

musical form.

My ex was a bluegrass fan, and played 5 string and guitar. He later acquired a dobro which is my favorite part of a bluegrass band.

Seeing Monroe and the Boys in live concert was amazing. If you knew where to go you could walk into all sorts of concerts during DJ Convention. We went to the bluegrass event 2 years, at the old Ryman. Monroe, Lester Flatt, Stanley Brothers, Seldom Scene, Jim and Jesse, and Marty Stuart when he was just a kid.
