Bluegrass Roundup by Mark Panfil, June 2024

As June dawns on the horizon, my eyes begin to focus more often on the summer bluegrass festivals. I think of the first Bluegrass festival that I went to, our dad drove us up to Canada to Bluegrass Canada, Carlisle Ontario.  I think I was 15 years old and my brother was 13; we had both been playing about a year and a half at the time. I played banjo and Chris played mandolin.  I remember being awestruck watching the Country Gentlemen play. My banjo teacher, Bob Schneider, was a big fan of the Gentleman. I realized then that it wasn’t just about the music or the singing or the fast b ..read more

Check out these few pieces of new Americana Music taken from https://www.americanaboogie.com/ Dusty Passports and Empty Beds  (independent) is Texas singer-songwriter, Keegan McInroe’s seventh studio album and very much a product of post 2020; when the world went into lock down, and what managed to come out at the the other end was our ambition. With time for reflection, McInroe was holed up at his mother’s home in Dublin, TX for the duration. “If hindsight is 2020, I hope to never look back again”, he states. Opening track, Big Year somehow reminds me of New York-born sin ..read more

Willie Schoellkopf’s Memorialization, April 2024
Sportsmen's Americana Music Foundation

Generous doesn’t come close to the love that was poured out of friends and family of Willie Schoellkopf who gave to the Sportsmen’s Americana Music Foundation in Willie’s name.  On March 17th, we celebrated Willie’s life at the Sportsmen’s Tavern.  It was a memorialization like no other; love filled the room.  The donations were generous and I’m sure Willie is honored by this outpour. We know his wife Collette is.  They both have a big heart (no past tense there, his heart is still with us) when it comes to SAMF and we will be honoring them by using the funds to create one ..read more

All Jazz is Americana by Constance Caldwell, April 2024

What does a jazz manifesto have to do with Americana? Everything! All Jazz is Americana. This statement was mightily endorsed by Sportsmen’s Americana Music Foundation in 2018 while supporting “Jazz Impressions: 1968” a special retrospect of jazz concerts curated by drummer (of all genres), composer, band leader and educator, John Bacon. Yours truly and many other in-kind donors were not far behind to assist. That successful two-month endeavor was cranked by dedication, scholarly research, big picture thinkers, talent, sheer will and friendship – and, of course, sponsorship support from SAMF ..read more
