Live Performances by the Abbott Brothers
All videos filmed at concerts in the Santa Cruz/Silicon Valley area.
Old Man at the Mill (progressive bluegrass)
An old folk song that we supercharged, with a fun, never-the-same-way-twice extended jam session at the end. Filmed at the Kuumbwa Jazz Center.
Long Gone Lonesome Blues (honky-tonk/country)
One of our favorite Hank Williams songs, with some yodeling, new arrangements, and audience participation at the end.
Salty Dog (hard-driving bluegrass)
Straight-ahead bluegrass song we learned from Flatt and Scruggs.
Sporting Life Blues (bluesy blues)
When the room is good and the audience is attentive, sometimes we like to bring things down to “Very Sparse” with old blues songs like this one.
Lovesick Blues (country + yodeling)
Just for fun: here’s a song from our very first concert!
No Longer Booking Gigs
We started this project in 2012 and played our last gig in 2016. It was a fun ride!
