Thoughts on writing from a Cul-de-Sac
I am taking the liberty of posting what Sam said to me about himself in a e-mail and shows what kind of human he is.
"My love of bluegrass and roots country music, that keeps me going east every summer. I'm a Civil War buff and I've visited all the battlefield parks now, spending hundreds of hours exploring them on foot in late evening or very early mornings because I get a feel that the spirits of the dead are with me then. Some of my great great grandfathers fought on the side of the South and I love to revisit the sites upon which they fought in battle.
I really need to retire while I'm still young enough to drive the countless miles I still look forward to experiencing. For the past five summers, I've made a 2000 mile round trip to Owensboro, KY, for the International Bluegrass Music Museum's big four-day fundraiser. That's about all I can cram in while working full time other than the occasional side trip to Dallas or Austin for music and book events."
PLEASE VISIT SAMS BOOK CHASE SITE AND ALSO HIS LOVE FOR BLUEGRASS MUSIC THROUGH HIS OTHER SITE AS SHOWN
Bluegrass & Honky Tonks
Bluegrass is one of the purest forms of real country music still around, and this blog is meant as a celebration of Bluegrass and other Traditional Country music. We will highlight those who create the real thing today and the legends who showed them the way.The quote is from Sam on his site.
THIS BLOG HONORING SAM IS A WORK IN PROGRESS AND WILL BE UPDATED ALL THE TIME.
