Dear Dry Branch Fire Squad:

Why is it that I never get tired of listening to Dry Branch Fire Squad??
My husband and I were in Grass Valley, Ca. more than ten years ago
when we heard your music drifting through the Grass Valley Fair Grounds. We have loved your group ever since.

We are coming up to see you on Nov. 27 in Charlottesville VA.

We have been coming to and listening to DBFS for years. WE have seen Ron and company in big events, like Grey Fox and tiny little places like a fire hall in northern New Hampshire. I'd say we have seen Ron and his groups at least 10 times.

A song request: Could you please do "Two Coats?" it is one of my DBFS favs. Thank you again and will see on Nov. 27.

Ron,
Found you on Youtube, loved the sound then bought most of your CDs. Listening to you stage talks, got the impression you weren't of the political ilk of many in bluegrass. Then I was thrilled to learn Dr. Ralph supported the more rational, productive political positions. As with you, he is among my top five singers of all time, esp. w/ his brother (Fields Have Turned Brown) which also has Ray, Emmylou, Aretha and George. My tastes overall are eclectic: good ole R&B, R&R and country as opposed to the new current stuff (I'm 76), Older classical like Bach, Mozart, Palestrina and so on and much more.
Based on much of your 'rant' may I suggest you subscribe to 'Foreign Affairs' magazine. It has articles and opinions from a broad range of political and philosophical thinkers. Francis Fukuyama for instance.
Dave

Sorry to hear of the retirements of two of your guys but I am sure the replacements will fit right in. I have seen you many times and have always enjoyed your music and humor. Looking forward to seeing you sometime soon

Any chance you may appear in one of the Villages theatres in the future? This is the largest retirement community in the United States and I am certain you would have a huge turnout. Population close to 160,000 people. The Orange Blossom Opry is one of the theatres that book bluegrass and gospel groups. Just a thought.

I did not put that smiley face in previous post! Must be a computer interpretation of some odd end-of-line characters. Also it strikes me that seldom-performed should be hyphenated for adjectival use.

Is it too late for a request for 2017 High Mountain Hay Fever repertoire? A seldom performed a cappella song from Ralph Stanley, on /Cry from the Cross/ album, known variously as You Go and I'll Go With You, or Marley's Ghost, or Sinner Man, perfect for Sunday mornings.

Sinner man, so discouraged
while travelling through this land, this land.
Oh, Lord, this land.

Come, let us have a little talk with Jesus
just to hear what He has to say.

(Chorus:)
My God Almighty spoke and He said,
"Go! And I'll go with you.
Open your mouth and I will speak speech for you."
For the Lord, tell me what to say,
they won't believe on me.

I would not be a sinner,
tell you the reason why:
'Fraid the Lord might call me [home]
and I wouldn't be ready to die.

(Chorus)

Some say give me silver. [Lordy]
Some say give me gold. [my brother]
I say, "Give me Jesus!
For He's precious to my soul."

(Chorus)
