Ed Perl, the founder of the Ash Grove on Melrose in West Los Angeles, the center of the folk revival in L.A., recalls Alan's coming in the club while Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys were appearing. He walked straight up to the stage, and after the second number he asked Monroe where he got the song he'd just played. "I was shocked," Perl said. "Nobody ever did that, let alone to God. Bill responded, "Is that you Alan?" and they proceeded to talk about and demonstrate the influence of black music on Bill and bluegrass - from Alan Lomax, The Man Who Recorded the World, by John Szwed

You can just gloss over most of this article, but the photos of Danny and the few paragraphs about him at the end are worth a look.

Especially the photo of his wrist tattoo . . .

Cool! Serendipity, from Austin to Port Townsend. Y'all are lucky to have Danny, from my very brief acquaintanceship with him.

Also, I had no idea that Grisman had moved up there. Shock! I had thought of him as the ultimate Californian. It's a mighty good scene that just continues to grow.

Tattoo's excellent!
