Proud papa Kazuhiro Inaba sent along photos and a video of his 10 year old daughter, Alisa, singing Blue Moon Of Kentucky at the Bluegrass Fuyu Fest in Osaka on January 10.
Kaz is a popular bluegrass singer in Japan, with a pair of albums on Copper Creek (Dixie Dream and Teardrops On A Rose). He is also a noted trader of new and vintage instruments through his business, Office White Oak.
Joining Alisa at the Fuyu Fest were members of the Rainbow Valley Bluegrass band, featuring her father on guitar and vocal, Kazuyoshi Onishi on mandolin, Hitoshi Imamura on banjo, Hiroyuki Momiyama on fiddle and Tatsuya Akiyama on bass.
Here’s Alisa on stage…
Well done, young lady!
