    Last week I picked up a DVD of Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver's 25th anniversary concert.
    I have had the CD for some time and enjoy it also.

    The concert starts with the original band including Terry Baucom on banjo singing bass and Lou Reid (now with Seldom Scene) on bass and singing tenor.
    As people left and people came the band changes its form during the concert.
    All the old members were there except one to be a part of it until you get to the current band which has Terry Baucom in it back on the banjo and singing bass.
    Its neat to hear the change in sound over the years but one thing remains that will never change. The discipline.
    Doyle is a hard one to work for. He is demanding.

    They wind up with the Blue grass song of the year Blue Train.
    Awesome DVD.

    Gibson is coming out with a Terry Baucom signature banjo I'd love to have soon.

    Doyle knows talent and is considered the professor of bluegrass.
    He'll take his bass player and put him on banjo or put a baritone singing tenor.
    You'll see the chair swapping in the DVD. These guys are talented.
    For instance Lou Reid can play anything with a string well enough to record and Terry Baucom is a champion fiddle player that makes his living playing the banjo.
    Gotta love the banjo player he had that has I guess a birth defect on his left hand. The only digit he has is a thumb. It doesnt slow him down on the banjo either.

    Thanks Mark. Interesting read and the DVD sounds great. I love the song they do, without any instruments, can't remember the name of it. Saw them once with Blue Highway several years ago. Great musicians.

    I picked mine up at Walmart for about 17 bucks.
    On their website they are about 26 if I remember right.

    Cheryl , they do several without music. The one that comes to mind most is
    There is a God.
    Doyle is big into harmonizing.
