“Bluegrass music is so unknown here. The ones that know our music are over the moon to hear it, starved for it actually.

Thanks to him we have some additional wonderful pictures of the Vologda-Semenkovo part of the tour. I am finding how much music weaves us all together. The Russians that have never been introduced to this Mountain music are feeling a true connection with these songs and binding us all together…..what a great honor it is for me and the boys to share what we do with these kind-hearted folks.”
