Watch Keller Williams Unite The All-Star Bluegrass “Andys” At NWSS [Video]

first_imgKeller Williams united three of the best pickin’ Andys he knows—Andy Thorn from Leftover Salmon and Andy Falco and Andy Hall from the Infamous Stringdusters—for a laid back, fun-in-the-sun set at this year’s Northwest String Summit. Williams brought his trademark sense of humor, wicked guitar playing, and uber-talented cadre of Andrews to Oregon’s picturesque Horning’s Hideout as part of the 17th-annual iteration of the popular bluegrass and Americana festival. With a backdrop of trees swaying in the hot summer breeze, Keller and his army of Andys mixed slick licks and silly songs, bringing smiles to the faces in the crowd.Covering everything from classics from Keller’s own catalog like “Portapotty” and “Broken Convertible” to hits from the Grateful Dead, The Band, Joe Walsh, Peter Rowan, and even an all-whistling rendition of the “Andy Griffith Theme Song,” the players offered up a cheeky, if not outright hilarious, set for the Northwest String Summit crowd. Check out some of the highlights from this delightful set of tunes below!“Andy Griffith Theme Song” > “Life’s Been Good”“Scarlet Begonias”“Broken Convertible”“Up On Cripple Creek”last_img read more

The Pakistan Super League was once again held in two stages, with the first part being held in the UAE while the second part was held in Pakistan. The games were shifted to Karachi from Lahore after the city’s air-space was closed indefinitely due to the ongoing tensions with India over the surgical strike carried out in Balakot by the Indian Air Force (IAF) in response to the Pulwama terror attack which killed 40 CRPF jawans.The third and final Test match between New Zealand and Bangladesh at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch, which was scheduled to be played on March 16, was cancelled after multiple shootings in mosques in the city. The official Twitter handle of the New Zealand cricket team, @BLACKCAPS, tweeted that a joint decision was made.The Bangladesh cricket team, who were touring New Zealand, had a narrow escape. A video tweeted by Bangladesh’s ESPNCricinfo correspondent Mohammad Isam showed the Bangladesh cricketers Tamim Iqbal and Taijul Islam running back from Hagley Park back to the cricket ground. The incident took place around 1.45pm local time when the team had gone to pray when the incident took place. New Delhi: The 2019 Pakistan Super League ended at the National stadium in Karachi with plenty of fanfare. Quetta Gladiators thrashed the Peshawar Zalmi to win their maiden title. Following the end of the match, the Pakistan Super League decided to organise a music-filled closing ceremony despite the recent terrorist attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand and this led to massive criticism. The attacks killed 50 people in what was described as the ‘worst terror attack’ on New Zealand soil. Reacting to the criticism, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has said the moment was actually ‘toned down’.  Speaking about the incident, PCB chief Ehsan Mani defended the decision to hold the closing ceremony in this way.“We acknowledged the incident, observed a minute’s silence, released pigeons and cut out dancing. All the songs too were iconic Pakistani songs. We had a dilemma due to the unfortunate New Zealand incident. People forget that we are also the victims of terrorism. Now the world knows what challenges are there. Pakistan’s problems are not different to anyone else’s. It doesn’t mean we should gloat. We will work with them and share our experiences but cricket should not stop. If cricket stops due to terrorism then it’s a victory for the terrorists. Players’ safety is of course important and cannot be risked but the game must go on too,” Mani said.
