Adam Kirr and Phil Chorney
May 3, 2023

Reverend Al and I are especially pleased to welcome the organizers of the Charm City Bluegrass Festival: two great entertainment guys, Adam Kirr and Phil Chorney. The Fells Point Festival, which they also curated, was a great success this past fall and now we are in the Spring and that means it's time for Charm City Bluegrass and it's 10th Anniversary.

This podcast is full of a bunch of musical fanatics. We venture into the minds and backgrounds of these two guys and we also entertain the spiritual aspects of Bluegrass and the music that impacts each of our lives. We bring forward an amazing Bluegrass fact...Baltimore was the first place to mass produce Banjos and we talk about the instrument and it's journey from Africa to the Appalachian Mountains.  

Full of fun conversations... we also focus on this great event coming up this weekend at Union Craft Brewery – starting Friday and ending after a marathon 12 hour day on Saturday. It's Headlined by the Infamous Stringdusters. The whole weekend is going to be hopping. So many great acts...Twisted Pine, The Honey Dew Drops, Grateful Dub, Magic Beans, and many more...

I have many great memories of the first few Charm City Bluegrass events at the old Union. This Festival keeps growing and growing – we've been to Druid Hill Park but now we're back at the Union Collective with a great inside-outside venue. There will be tons of food trucks – this looks to be a real good smash-up of Bluegrass fans from all over celebrating this great art and doing it at Union with nature, food, drink and fun times.

It's heavenly work and these guys have it down. There's lots to learn here and Rev. and I think you are really going to like it. Thanks to Adam and Phil. It's always good to have you in – thanks for all of the hard work and your passion for Bluegrass.

The Great Dr. Rev. Al Hathaway (He's Holy) and Martin G. Knott Jr (I'm Knott) bring forward special guests to talk about amazing things that are happening throughout the great city of Baltimore. We will be operating without a net and talking about everything under the sun. Who can stop what must arrive now, something new is waiting to be born!
