David Naiditch – Bluegrass that Swings – Bluegrass, Jazz…

I have recently discovered a CD titled Bluegrass that Swings by David Naiditch on the Airplay Direct Website. David Naiditch is a harmonica player who plays Bluegrass music, Western Swing, Jazz, Klezmer, Ragtime and more.

The harmonica is not the typical Bluegrass instrument, it was the first time that I found Bluegrass recordings with a harmonica. But it fits well to a typical Bluegrass band with guitar, banjo, fiddle and mandolin.

David has compile a Bluegrass playlist with more than 43 videos, including many examples from his CDs.

But I remember that Bill Monroe used to have an accordion in some of his early recordings like in this recording of Blue Grass Special at the end of the video:

The Stoneman Family – With Donna Stoneman on Mandolin,…

I have discovered the Stoneman Family some time ago. I was immedately thrilled by the performance of the group, especially by Donna Stoneman on the mandolin. I have learned that Roni Stoneman is considered “The First Lady Of Banjo”.

You can see Donna Stoneman and her mandolin in the following video:

Donna is moving all the time, dancing, jumping and at the same time plays great and energetic mandolin music. And the performances by the Stoneman Family are almost always very funny.

Glen Duncan: A Standout Fiddler in a Crowd of Pickers

“There”s thirteen-hundred and fifty-two guitar pickers in Nashville, and they can pick more notes than the number of ants on a Tennessee anthill.”

No player in Nashville is more capable than Glen Duncan. A multi-instrumentalist who specializes in fiddle, Duncan’s discography contains more album titles than some people’s entire CD collections.
