DAVE WILBURN - With the Kirk Brothers


DAVE WILBURN -
With the Kirk Brothers
 
Lord Show Me The Way - Near The Cross - Bloom Where You Are Planted - My Rock - Search The Book Again - Lord I Need You More - Put My Little Shoes Away - Let The Tear Stain The Altar - Christ Is Not A Baby - God Sent An Angel - The Overton Waltz - He Made Me Whole - Another Jewel - Do His Bidding Today
 
One of the most precious moments in time that I have is listening to the servants of Christ praise Him.  Dave Wilburn is one of Christ's servants, and this CD he just sent me does a remarkable job of praising the Lord is such a wonderful simple way.  To my way of thinking 'simplicity is the epitome of sophistication.'  And I hear it more and more wherever I go.  The electronic gadgetry of music seems to be ebbing now.  Many artists are searching, seeking, and finding that very real simple approach to music.  That's what Dave has done with this fine production.  Please remember Dave is in his mid-90's so he's experienced a lot of the ups and downs of living on planet earth, especially these days when times are so uncertain....still....Dave is able to bring his talent to play, and play he does for our Lord Jesus Christ.  Not only does he play well, he includes seven songs he has written himself.  He recorded this wonderful CD with his pickin' friends the Kirk Brothers; James on guitar, lead singing and harmony, Larry singing tenor and playing acoustic standup bass, and David singing baritone and playing mandolin.  Dave comes right in there with lead vocals and guitar, as well as a little bass.  You can surely hear this fine harmony on the song "My Rock" which is done acapello without instrumentation.  These Kirk Brothers are tremendous gospel singers, and are surely deserving of being in our Hall of Fame which I hope will come to pass, with Dave's nomination.  This old time honest and sincere devotion is unparalleled in my book, it's the best.  Thank you Dave Wilburn for bringing this wonderful old-time gospel CD to my attention.  I'm definitely going to pass this one along to the Rural Roots Music Commission.  How could I not, Dave has included me in the photo that is on the cover of this super piece of music.

TRADITION BULLETIN November 18. 2013


TRADITION BULLETIN November 18. 2013

 
As usual, this time of year, not a lot is happening in the world of 'real' country music, but there's a little going on.
 
Hank Williams Jr. will receive the 2013 "Patriot Award" from Operation Troop Aid on Dec. 31, when he performs for their New Year bash in Nashville.  The award is given to celebrities that champion men and women serving in the American armed forces.
 
Latest news from Branson, Tony Orlando is bailing out.  Don't have any details about that, but maybe the economy is starting to hurt there too now.
 
We might have a very special guest at our Fremont Festival (usually Oct 3-4-5, 2014), but we still do not have a confirmation on how much they will charge us.)  Anyway Patsy and the Country Classics from Virginia are planning on being with us.  This is a super good 'real' country band, I hope it all works out.
 
Marge & Arlyn Lund (Marge is one of our regulars at the Oak Tree Opry in Anita, Iowa) just celebrated their 53rd wedding anniversary November 12.  I believe Arlyn said the temperature outside was 16-degrees, but I'm sure they'll keep warm.
 
George Strait sold his cowboy boots for $130.000 at the Tapatio Springs Golf Course in Boerne, Texas, and went on to raise an additional $295,000 for a total of $425,000 to benefit David Feherty's "Troops First" Foundation.  The Foundation provides meaningful assistance to military members who have been wounded in Iran or Afghanistan.
 
We had received word on November 10th that Ray Price was to leave the hospital after two months treatment for pancreatic cancer.  Just got a note from Pat Boilesen informing us that Mr. Price is still in the hospital and has to stay there an additional 17 days because an Obama Care rule on Medicare requires confinement to the same care center for 30 days receiving dialysis as an out patient BEFORE the doctor can write an order for the dialysis to even take place.  Whaaaat?  Ray Price recovered from Sepsis infection, but has kidney damage even though they are now functioning.  Wow, this Obama Care thing just simply doesn't work for America.  Mr. Price should have already gone home, where he wants to relax in his own easy chair.
 
If you haven't seen the Darrell Brothers "Mountain Twerker" on Face-Book, you missing something, that's for sure.  It's a tongue in cheek slap at Miley Cyrus.
 
Interested in folk music, Arlo Guthrie will be performing at the Ozark Folk Center in Mountain View, Arkansas, on March 29th, next year.  $30 admission price.  It's their first celebrity performance of the year.
 
Do you remember Bobby Gentry?  "Ode To Billy Joe."  She's going to be honored in her home state of Mississippi with a marker on the Mississippi Country Music Trail.  She was born Roberta Streeter in Chickasaw County in 1944, making her 69 years young.  She had several other hits, including "Fancy" and "Mississippi Delta."  I've tried for years to find a communication method to her but failed every time.  Maybe someone who can go to the presentation could tell her we're trying to get her in our Hall of Fame.
 
Remember David Holt?  He was on my IPTV show some years ago and also worked a lot with Doc Watson.  He was just awarded the first Heritage Hero Laurel on the 10th anniversary of the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area.   Holt said "It's foolish to go into folk music for fame or fortune, you do it because you love it."  Oh yeah, look at the millions Bob & Sheila make.  You might also remember Holt, who was in the movie "Oh Brother Where Art Thou," at the courthouse scene where the mob is going the hang the cow killer Baby Face Nelson.  Holt is the silly looking/acting guy playing the mandolin in the parade.
 
That reminds me of when Rick and Harriette Andersen were in the bank in Underwood, and a hold up guy came in.  He ordered everybody to turn around and demanded all the money.  As he was leaving he noticed someone looking at him, so he shot him.  He turned to Rick who was looking far away and asked him if had got a look at him, and Rick said "no sir I sure didn't, but my wife did."
 
Barbara Combs is the mover and shaker behind the PMECI Club over in Des Moines.  She recently had heart surgery, but is back home and doing fine.  She is going to take on the additional work of the club's monthly magazine which has gone through a very nice fixing-up.  Lots of color now, and much easier to read.
 
Ron Wilburne our good friend in California (you might remember he came to LeMars with his dad Dave.  Great duet singing.  Ron was once in the New Christy Minstrel Singers.  Anyway there are samples of his singing with the Riverbend Folk Band on Reverbnation.  Find him there and take a nice refreshing listen to some real folk music.
 
Great upcoming 25th Reunion Gospel Song Festival coming up Sunday, November 24th.  You'll get to see performers from the original line-up 25 years ago, including: Bill Hendren, Bobby Awe & Dale Eichor, Bob Johnson, annie & Terri Avery, Marilyn Janssen, Gary Brandt, all starting at 3pm at the IRP Theater in Rowan, Iowa.
