The Spirit Of The Suwannee Music Park has seen some fairly incredible jams over the years, and the Suwannee Summer Clusterpluck was a fine addition to that hallowed tradition. The concept behind the two-day bluegrass Clusterpluck was a simple but solid one on the part of promoter Paul Levine: Gather some of the finest pickers in the land, add a proper stage and PA, and turn the musicians loose. The result was a weekend of musical mix-and-matching, with each set sporting a number of sit-ins and collaborations from the talented musicians on hand in addition to the super jam on the final night dubbed the “Summer Suwannee Clusterpluck.”Vince Herman Leads Wild 30-Minute “Midnight Rider” All-Star Jam At Clusterpluck [Video]Of course, when it comes to pulling together the right players for an event of this nature, it’s easier said than done. To make an event like Clusterpluck work, you need to find the right balance of talents and personalities, and for the final super jam, it doesn’t hurt to have someone who can act as an on-stage general to keep everyone on the same page. So when Levine was putting the event together, he knew there was only one choice to help him launch this new endeavor — the living embodiment of festival life himself, Leftover Salmon‘s Vince Herman. Herman, along with his partner-in-Salmon/crime Drew Emmitt, acted as the brain trust for the planned super jam, in addition to the duo taking on the responsibility of a set each day.The Wit And Wisdom Of Leftover Salmon’s Vince HermanGenerals need soldiers, and Clusterpluck filled out its ranks with the husband and wife duo of flat-picker guitar buzzsaw Larry Keel and his bass-playing better half Jenny Keel. Rising stars The Jon Stickley Trio brought their neo-classical, jazz-tinged bluegrass to add much-needed depth and sonic diversity to the mix as well. Outlaw bluegrass act Grandpa’s Cough Medicine, Pickled Holler, Albert Simpson and the right Reverend Jeff Mosier rounded out the stellar assortment of musical weapons at the disposal of the coming war on boredom.The various bands each took a set a day, eagerly welcoming their fellow players from the other acts for a weekend chock full of magical collaborative moments that simply can never be repeated. The off-the-cuff energy and improvisational nature of the performances made each song an adventure that was familiar but boldly retold for fresh ears. The fun didn’t even stop when the last notes rang out in the beloved Suwannee Music Hall, as the players took their musical circle out into the friendly confines of the park itself.The Spirit Of The Suwannee Music Park was founded so that bluegrass could flourish year round, and the Clusterpluck did a wonderful job of honoring that tradition. Fans of the genre and fans of music itself would do well to hope that the “Summer” in the title is an indication of a seasonal return for this first-time event. Until such an announcement comes, our own Rex Thomson has several highlights from the first iteration of the festival for you to check out below. Keep an ear out for possible follow-up events in the future, and until then, you can listen to a variety of tracks from the various acts and the best of the multi-player mayhem that closed out the weekend. It truly earned the title “Clusterpluck!” Enjoy!Grandpa’s Cough Medicine“Jam 1”“I Ain’t Got The Money To Drink No More”Larry & Jenny Keel“Ashes Of Love”The Jon Stickley Trio“Jam”Vince Herman & Drew Emmitt“Gentle On My Mind”“Melissa”Suwannee Summer Clusterpluck“Road Kill”“Black Muddy River”“How Mountain Girls Can Love”“Jam”“Louie Louie>Love Light”The combination of friends and family, great weather, and once-in-a-lifetime music made the inaugural Suwannee Summer Clusterpluck a perfect blend of love and insanity.

Ronaldo was sold to Real Madrid, but returned to San Siro in the red and black of Milan in January 2007. “It didn’t go well, but Silvio Berlusconi and above all Adriano Galliani cared for me so much. The rapport with them is a memory that still makes me smile to this day. Respect remains. “It might seem easy to say that now, but it’s the truth: at that time, I really wanted to come back to Inter. I did everything to come back to Inter. I waited as long as it was possible, but when Inter didn’t give me a yes or no answer, it meant no. “I didn’t feel that I was a traitor in joining Milan, but rather that I had been betrayed by Inter. It wasn’t a popular choice, but I’ve never been afraid of those.” read also:Immobile beats Ronaldo, Lewandowski to Europe’s top-scorer award Now Inter are challenging for the Scudetto again with new patrons Suning, who have impressed Ronaldo. “I trust the Zhang family and have the same dream as all the other Inter fans. With all due respect to Juventus, who in Italy set the example for how to run a club and build a new era, but it’s time their dictatorship of Serie A came to an end. It’s now time for Inter, I see no other option.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Ronaldo discusses his injury, a row with Hector Cuper, feeling ‘betrayed’ when he joined Milan and why ‘it’s time Inter end the Juventus dictatorship’ in Serie A. The Brazilian spoke to La Gazzetta dello Sport’s magazine Sportweek about his time at Inter, the devastating injuries and the abrupt end after losing the Scudetto on that infamous May 5, 2002. “I felt pain and fear when my knee went at the Stadio Olimpico. Would I return, and in what condition? However, once that initial fear had passed, I found an inner strength that I didn’t even know I had. I was a different man, but with the same love for football. That passion was my best coach, medic, physio and teammate.” In that same stadium in Rome, Ronaldo played his final match for Inter, the 4-2 defeat to Lazio that handed Juventus the Scudetto in 2002. “The injury was destiny, but we have to take the blame for what happened on May 5. When your destiny is in your hands and you let it slip away, you can’t get angry with anyone else. We just weren’t ourselves and never managed to figure out what happened. That’s why I was crying. “That Scudetto was the very least I could give to the Inter fans, for how much they had loved me. I didn’t know it was my last game, I had just told (President Massimo) Moratti that there was simply no connection with Hector Cuper and could never be. There wasn’t even a possible compromise. “A long time after we said goodbye, I talked about it with Moratti again and we ‘forgave’ each other, with no blame. At that moment, perhaps neither of us had any other choice.” Promoted ContentThe Best Cars Of All TimeThe Funniest Prankster Grandma And Her GrandsonThis Guy Photoshopped Himself Into Celeb Pics And It’s Hysterical8 Things To Expect If An Asteroid Hits Our Planet7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterPretty Awesome Shows That Just Got Canceled7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterInsane 3D Spraying Skills Turn In Incredible Street Art10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoA Soviet Shot Put Thrower’s Record Hasn’t Been Beaten To This DayWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?Dazzling Wedding Looks From Different Countries In The World Loading…
