CD Review by Steve Margulis

Steve Margulis is a former HVBA Board Member and a founding member of the famed Blue Mask Boys, formed during the Covid pandemic. Alas, Steve has moved to PA, but his heart is still with the HVBA and he has written this review of The Del McCoury Band's latest CD. Read his take on the album so that you will know whether or not to order your own copy.

New Trivia Question

This one surprised me!! I think it's worth throwing your two cents into the hat and giving it your best. Maybe, with inflation, you'd better have a little more than two cents! Go have fun with this one.

David Chernack's Playlist

Bluegrass Masters: Mandolin

This week you are treated to a curated playlist that includes some of the finest examples of bluegrass mandolin music. This all comes to you by courtesy of David Chernack, one of the HVBA's top mandolin players (and fiddle and guitar and, although I've never heard him play it, viola). Put your headsets on...tune out the world...and enjoy!!!!
