    A blast from my past… The woman singing the lead vocal with the Doug Dillard Band is Ginger Boatwright. I love the way she sings this song. She used to pick with us at the restaurant. Her health was bad so she couldn’t make it every week. I need to drive over and see how she’s doing.



    Some of you maybe asking “Who is the Doug Dillard Band”. Funny, all of you have heard them perform. On the Andy Griffith show they were known as the “Darlins”.



    My buddy Jim kept us organized at the restaurant. He performed with Doug Dillard at the same time Ginger did. Her video was shot years later. Jim happens to be one of the founding members of the Bluegrass Hall of Fame. Every week he would have a “legend” come and sit in with us around the fireplace.

    A lot of young couples and kids from the University ate at the restaurant. They enjoyed our music but to them we were just a bunch of old people playing bluegrass. They had no idea that each week they were listening to a Who’s Who list from the bluegrass world. :D

    We actually did put an ad in the local Advertiser about 12 years ago. Only answer was a man who played in a sympheny orchestra. Or people who drank too much or did drugs. We did go to the mans house who played classical orchestra music and he and his wife were good people, but you can only take so much of Big Band and Strauss on a guitar.
    Then you have those who only play for money. Or already have a band.

    Keep after it. If you are persistent enough, it will pay off. Eventually the right pairs of eyes will see those ads...even if it's somebody's friend or relative of a musician. Look at it as health insurance...(and it's a lot cheaper, lol!)

    I think my first concert was Doobie Brothers. I did not go to as many as compared to some of yall, I'm sure. That's why I might be able to still hear. Sort of.

    I remember him from the Souther-Hillman-Furay Band, and all those guys associated with each other. Easy listening...So I'm listening to the song you mentioned. A change for him.
