I'm sure there's no way this would ever happen but I spend a lot of my day dreaming time thinking of stuff like this, if I wasn't attempting to stick to the tried and true traditions of TBF I'd add a few more rock and roll bands, but this is pretty close to my dreams.
My dream TBF schedule:
Thursday:
Chris Thile, Yo Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer
My-Tea Kind w/ Randy Crouch
Randy Crouch, Vince Herman and Dan Rose
Danny Barnes
Todd Snider
Tim O'Brien
Billy Strings
House Band
Friday:
Billy Strings and Brian Sutton play Doc Watson
John Fulbright w/ Paul Benjamin Band
Jeffrey Lewis and Los Bolts
Bonnie Paine Friends, and Family
Byron Berline
Infamous String Dusters
Leftover Salmon
Ween w/ Shit Creek Boys
Saturday:
Band Contest
Jerry Douglas Band
The Cleverlys

Oh where have all the flowers gone. Long time passing.

Tradition. We need some old time traditional to the core Bluegrass and Country. Lets not forget our heros while they are still around.

Generations of music lovers and the evolution of bluegrass always important. Kinfolk sort of. History it means so much to feel connected and know why. LOL Flower

Who in traditional Bluegrass is left?

I HAVE GOT IT! Anyone in Bluegrass over the age of 70 is invited for a pick off. I bet it would be epic. LOL That is my injection for a sunday set.

How many over 70 professional bluegrass players are still performing (outside of their home areas). Just off the top of my head I can only think of a few Grisman, Rowan, Byron Berline, Del, that would get you fiddle guitars and mando. Theres a bit more country players over 70 still doing it, but again not many. Glad I caught one more Willie Nelson show this year. He's still a great performer though his voice isn't nearly as strong as it used to be, his family band is still tight as ever!
How old is Jerry Douglas? I know he's not 70 but he's surely mid 60's. Just looked it up, he's 62 this year, thought he was a bit older. Guess he must have been pretty young on some of those old Peter Rowan records I have.
An ole Sam Bush is inching closer to 70. All the good ole goodens are getting up there in years or sadly have already gone.
Are any of the Dillards still playing/alive?
I still think of the YMSB boys as a young band, but they are all my age which is mid 40's. And now they're going on over 20 years as a band, man time flys. Ain't nobody getting any younger these days.
