Bluegrass surf music?

Here’s a video that’s simply too precious for words…

Our friend Dave Hollender found this on It’s a clip of Donna and Ronnie Stoneman from 40 plus years ago.

Here how the clip is described at Dailymotion…

“Here’s a Bluegrass-Hullabaloo crossover performance: Donna Stoneman of the Stoneman Family shredding it on her electric mandolin to Bill Monroe’s Bluegrass Stomp while her sister Ronnie yelps, gyrates and beats her tambourine, from an unknown 1960’s TV show. The lecherous gentleman wandering into the recording session is none other than Spike Jones sideman Doodles Weaver. This clip may be from the Marty Robbins movie Road To Nashville.”

Update 4:15 p.m. – Richard Thompson tells us that that clip was most assuredly from The Road To Nashville.
