Folks have been asking, so in a stunning turnaround of previous policy (we preferred for YOU to come up with what you THINK we were singing) Mr. Barnes shares with everyone the lyrics to his composition, just now featured on HBO's "True Blood." here ya go:
well it's a death trip trying to follow someone else's dream
when the world that you know goes splitting at the seams
i love my little baby like i love my old machine
she left me for a feller that she hardly ever seen
i'm on a death trip baby, i'm on a death trip
well my world tumbled down when the leaves began to fallRead more

Here's a note from the old Sugar Hill label folks:
Good news. This spot was confirmed today! Up to one minute of the song will be used.
Of the six placements Welk/Sugar Hill/Vanguard has enjoyed in this show’s 2 seasons so far, I anticipate this one to be the best. Song should be highlighted quite nicely.
Airs this Sunday, Aug. 2nd @ 9pm – episode #207Read more

Well, it was my first trip and I must state publicly that the fellows from the Yonder Mountain String Band throw an amazing party there in the Oregon woods. Bad Livers put in a solid set (download it here if you are so inclined, courtesy Peacock Radio: http://www.archive.org/details/badlivers2009-07-17.soundboard.flac16,) and Barnes and I played with just about everybody there, including the Del McCoury Band, Darol Anger, Mike Marshall, and a whole mess of other fine pickers, not a stinker in the bunch.
Check the photos for some new uploads as well.
Maybe next year, who knows?

Maybe so! The old record label called to ask if we wouldn't mind licensing the track "Death Trip" from Blood and Mood to be the closing credits track for an upcoming episode of HBO's Vampire soap opera "True Blood."
What the heck, right?
Will advise it we actually get picked.
Oh, and be sure to look out for Danny out on the road in Colorado soon. His playing is all over the latest Dave Mattews Band CD, which as he likes to say "RAWKS."
