Gracie Muldoon, one of our regular correspondents and a popular Internet bluegrass cybercaster, responded to our post last week about Nothin’ Fancy on MySpace.com.???She wanted to let us know that a good many bluegrass bands had pages there, and that she had one herself as well.
Some of the other bluegrass acts she mentioned as having MySpace sites are The Grascals, Valerie Smith, Uncle Earl, Nickel Creek, Sam Bush, Donna Hughes, Tony Rice, Wildfire, John Cowan, Dan Tyminski, King Wilkie, Phil Leadbetter, and The Chapmans.
Some of these artist sites have audio and video, all have tours dates and artist bio, and all allow for other MySpace users to leave comments and link together as “Friends” – the term used on MySpace for linking between user pages.
I’m sure there are other artists with spaces on their network, and a bit of snooping on MySpace.com should turn them up.
