Hard up for cash this holiday season? Take advantage of my FREE album download available at NoiseTrade. I originally made the Barnstormin’ album available this year as a thank you to bluegrass followers everywhere in celebration of my 20th anniversary as a bandleader, but hey, it works as a great gift too! Just include the link in your e-card or letter to friends and family and turn them on to some great bluegrass. What could be simpler?
And if your pockets aren’t empty (yet!), then how about cybershopping my artist page at CDBaby. The recently released DVD documentary “Making History with Pioneers of Bluegrass” would be a welcome addition to any bluegrass historian’s library and is just $20. And don’t forget to throw in a CD of some great bluegrass music! Our most recent album, “One Foot in the Honky Tonk” made two Top Ten CDs of 2011 lists and had a single that charted nationally. Or perhaps you want to go with a bigger bang for your buck? Well then, how about the double set “Troubled Times” which includes the highly acclaimed CD featuring original songs and new arrangements of classics PLUS a DVD of the full-length docmentary “Rollin’ On” about life on the road with me and the band.
Looking for some non-musical bluegrass items? I’ve got that too! At the James Reams Market (powered by CafePress) there’s a whole line of items from T-shirts to embroidered baseball caps to chambray workshirts featuring the logo of your favorite bluegrass band! And what bluegrass lover doesn’t enjoy waking up in the morning to a nice hot cup of coffee? Well, now that coffee can be served in a mug or travel mug that let’s everyone know you’re a bluegrass lover.
Simply click on the item choices displayed across the top of the site to see the most popular items. To see the full collection, choose from the gray sidebar under “Shop by Collection.” Choices include Miscellaneous (golf balls, canvas bags, totes, office items, stickers etc.), Drinkware (water bottles, coffee mugs, thermos, even coasters!), and Apparel (hats, shirts, aprons, flip flops…everything you need to outfit yourself for a bluegrass festival). There are over 400 items to choose from at the James Reams Market so there’s sure to be something unique to please that “hard to buy for” loved one or friend.
Shameless promoting aside, I do wish all of you a safe and happy holiday season. All the best to you in 2014!
