Darol Anger’s All-Star Blur-Grass Fondue, May 19th at Twisted Oak!

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/18/2018 12:03 PM
Vallecito, CA...It's a concatenation of some of the most brilliant Acoustic String Music stars, all of whom are excellent at standing out while blending. If they don't want you to notice them, you won't… but when the Chips are Down, the Pizza is Delivered with rockets and sirens. Much like fondue; a great hot thick compost of taste, tying the room together but leading boldly from the center of the table. And they will play Bluegrass with force, subtlety, and lovely touches of humor and grace. Three of the most influential of the West Coast branch of Acoustic Music players - and well-know to Twisted Folk audiences - fiddler Darol Anger, guitarist-multi-instrumental virtuoso John Jorgenson, and 5-string banjoist Keith Little, together for the first time, join two highly beloved musicians: bassist/mandolinist Sharon Gilchrist and mandolinist Joe K. Walsh.

The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County ~ By Mark Twain 1835-1910

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/18/2018 09:56 AM
Angels Camp, CA...In compliance with the request of a friend of mine, who wrote me from the East, I called on good-natured, garrulous old Simon Wheeler, and inquired after my friend's friend, Leonidas W. Smiley, as requested to do, and I hereunto append the result. I have a lurking suspicion that Leonidas W. Smiley is a myth; that my friend never knew such a personage; and that he only conjectured that, if I asked old Wheeler about him, it would remind him of his infamous Jim Smiley, and he would go to work and bore me nearly to death with some infernal reminiscence of him as long and tedious as it should be useless to me. If that was the design, it certainly succeeded.

President Trump at a California Sanctuary State Roundtable

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/16/2018 04:48 PM
Washington, DC...Good afternoon. I’m greatly honored to be here with the courageous mayors and sheriffs and local leaders from across the state of California. A great state. Each of you has bravely resisted California’s deadly and unconstitutional sanctuary state laws. You’ve gone through a lot, too, although it’s becoming quite popular what you’re doing. A law that forces the release of illegal immigrant criminals, drug dealers, gang members, and violent predators into your communities. California’s law provides safe harbor to some of the most vicious and violent offenders on Earth, like MS-13 gang members putting innocent men, women, and children at the mercy of these sadistic criminals. But we’re moving them out of this country by the thousands. MS-13, we’re grabbing them by the thousands and we’re getting them out, Kevin.
