Ever hopeful in a recession, many businesses are gearing up for sales up to Christmas and beyond. Among the delights becoming available is the 2013 Bluegrass Calendar published by Bluegrass Productions of Virginia.
The 2013 edition, the 22nd in all, focuses on bluegrass music in Nashville with a dozen full-color pictures by one of the city’s best snappers of bluegrass acts on stage, Alane Anno. She captures the images of the likes of Jesse McReynolds, J.D. Crowe, the Larry Stephenson Band, Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road, Larry Sparks, Eddie and Martha Adcock, Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers and Chris Jones & the Night Drivers while they are at work in Nashville and the greater Nashville area.
Those venues, such as the Station Inn, Gruhn Guitars, the Ryman Auditorium, the Ernest Tubb Record Shop and the Texas Troubadour Theater – all of which have helped Nashville supplant Washington DC as the capital of bluegrass music, are highlighted also.
As well as the photographs of the top stars in bluegrass music today there are day-by-day listings of milestones in bluegrass history, making the 2013 Bluegrass Calendar an attractive gift for Christmas that will, as they say, last all year.
Did you know that that it’s Tim Stafford’s birthday tomorrow (September 14)? You would with a copy of the calendar.
The 2013 Bluegrass Calendar can be purchased direct from the publisher at the cost of $9.95.
