Here are a few pictures people took of me @ the fundraiser Grass Stock ’09
Sponsored by World Wide Bluegrass (WWB).
I am deeply grateful to be a part of such an event!
HUGE thank you to Kaye Dickenson Hill and Selena Leonard for shooting those moments in time that we so cherish!
Just got back from this weekends’ amazing event Grass Stock ’09.
Talk about some pickin’ ! The WWB (World Wide Bluegrass) was so kind to allow me to share the main stage with so many wonderful pickers.
Thanks to everyone who gave kind words and made it out to chat and pick with me- I live for these kind of events where music, fun, and friends gather.
Anyone with photos or video of the event feel free to forward them on to my email- JonEricMusic@Gmail.com
Would be delighted to share them with others if you allow it.
HUGE and special thanks to banjoists Butch Osborne, Johnny Butten, for the inspiring and kindred words of their amazing banjo talent!
Last but not least thanks to Roger Bush (bass) for giving me so much ear candy from his friends’ “amazing” cds. Roger & I were chasing the sun picking and singing into the night. Sharing parts of our musical lives which allowed for inspiration beyond words! Such an honor meeting you buddy! It’s very ironic to find that one is an inspiration putting a face with some tunes I has been listening to for years! I am sure our paths will cross again real soon my friend.
NEW BAND NEWS! There is a new band I have been asked to be a part of and we already have been to several venues around town-

Anyone interested in booking the band can feel free to email me or find us through the other sites we maintain. Book it now for next years’ events cause the calander will book up fast!
