Taped by: marcus Greensky moves away from the traditional

Bluegrass evokes a few images: jars of whiskey, front porch banjo sessions and country gents with overalls and beards. So it's only natural that some bluegrass fans are surprised to hear that Greensky Bluegrass is from Michigan and has as much in common with The Grateful Dead as it does with Ralph Stanley.
But such is life for Greensky and the swelling crop of new-grass bands, that, as dobro player Anders Beck says, are "moving on from that tradition into our own style of bluegrass, melding it with our own influences, be they jam bands or jazz."

Greensky Bluegrass first gained attention after winning the 2006 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Contest. But the band has long been a piece of the music's intricate social fabric, as members (including guitarist Dave Bruzza, bassist Mike Devol, banjoist Mike Bont and mandolin player Paul Hoffman) played in assorted bands.Beck, who joined in 2008, knew the band simply through "playing with them at festivals and late-night bluegrass pickin' sessions."

Newest album "Five Interstates," full of new songs that sound like standards, was even produced by Tim Carbone of bluegrass-scene staple Railroad Earth.
Along with acts like Yonder Mountain String Band and Old Crow Medicine Show, the five-man, all-acoustic Greensky Bluegrass keeps one foot in traditional music and steps the other forward. The sound isn't unfamiliar -- banjo, mandolin and stand-up bass picking still race through the tunes, but so do heavy grooves, swooning strings and extended jams.

"Because the word 'bluegrass' is in our name, we do sometimes hear from the purists -- the 'bluehairs in their lawn chairs,' as we say. We might freak them out a bit, and there's nothing wrong with that," says Beck. "We're bringing people into the genre who aren't familiar with the traditional stuff, who then delve back and find the origins. You discover music's roots that way -- people who love The Grateful Dead learn that Jerry Garcia used to play banjo, too."

So Far [VHS] Republicans Favor Medical Marijuana, Poll Shows

By: Andy Newman

Medical marijuana’s support among voters in New York State is so solid that even a substantial majority of Republicans favor its legalization, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday. The poll found that 71 percent of voters supported medical marijuana, including 55 percent of registered Republicans. The poll numbers seem to confirm others cited by sponsors of the current medical marijuana bill in the Assembly. The poll, on a range of issues before the State Legislature, also found that 75 percent of New York voters support a wage freeze for state workers to help balance the budget, while 78 percent oppose cutting state aid to schools to do so. Gov. David A. Paterson’s proposed tax on sugary sodas, meanwhile, was opposed by 57 percent of voters.
