- Hello, friends and neighbors, welcome

to Song of the Mountains, I'm your host, Tim White.

Great lineup on tonight's show, so let's get started.

On the stage first,

we have Gary Brewer and the Kentucky Ramblers.

Few singers and instrumentalists can lay claim

to a family heritage in traditional American string music

to rival that of Gary Brewer,

for longevity and authenticity.

His roots in the music go back six generations,

to Roan Mountain, in East Tennessee.

The legendary Finley J. Pap Brewer,

Gary's grandfather, performed frequently on radio,

and as a youngster, appeared on several shows

with the original Carter family, playing the music

that formed the foundation of traditional bluegrass music

in later years.

For 36 years now, Gary has toured with performances

in nearly all 50 states, and 18 foreign countries,

yielding 48 recordings.

Gary has stamped his style of music as Brewgrass,

and has carried it to audiences all over the world.

Gary is indeed proud to have his sons

and father as part of the show,

and we're proud to have him on the stage here tonight.

On Song of the Mountains,

we bring you Gary Brewer and the Kentucky Ramblers.

[audience cheers] [audience applauds]

- [Kevin] Ryan Lester.

- [Ryan] Thank you.

[audience applauds]

- Thank you so much, we'll do you a song right now,

we have a new CD project out,

it's entitled All I Ever Wanted,

it's on the Patuxent Music label,

out of Rockville, Maryland.

And we'll do you a song right now

about a pretty popular vegetable

in this part of the country, and this vegetable happens

to be real popular down in North Carolina,

and Eastern Kentucky, and West Virginia,

and getting to be real popular just all over place.

The beautiful thing about this vegetable is,

is people figured out

that they could make more money selling it

by the quart than they could the acre.

[audience laughs]

[band laughs]

This song tells the story about a man named Bill,

and he ran one of these vegetable liquefying machines back

up in the mountains, close to where I live,

and he learned how to sell by the quart real quick

by pointing his gun at you,

and making you take a little drink with him,

and after four or five warnings and several drinks,

he would hand you the gun,

and you could point it after him for a while, okay?

And he drank right with you, he was just that friendly type

of guy, it's entitled The Moonshine Bill, Jake?

[audience laughs]

My old boss used to say, "You ain't much,

Our time's about come and gone, and

in lieu of all this great bluegrass music

that you've heard play here tonight,

there's no better way to close out our portion

of the show than with a rock and roll song.

[overlapping chattering] [audience murmurs]

It's always written in the bottom of our contract

that we do this, so can't help it, it's just the way we are.

But this song's been pretty good

to us for the last little while,

and everybody gets a little piece of it.

I want to say from all the band members standing

up here tonight, truly, once again,

what an honor it is for us to come and be part

of the Song of the Mountains, and I've,

as Tim told you, I was back here several years ago

with my dear late boss man, Mr. James King,

and I remembered what a great time we had here then,

and tonight's been extra special for us.

It's something we've been wanting to do for a long time

'cause some of the greatest bluegrass fans

in the world are sitting right here

in this audience tonight,

and that makes us feel very special and honored

to get to perform for you folks.

So we appreciate each and every one of you,

from the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much.

[audience applauds]

We leave you with this, and everybody gets a piece of,

and we hope you enjoy it,

thank you all so much, God bless.
