Long-time friends Gregg Daigle and Don Grieser announce the release of “Palatable to a Goat,” a recording of guitar and mandolin instrumentals. The CD features six original tunes and six traditional tunes and melodies they have enjoyed and played together for years. The official release date is November 20, 2019.

Gregg and Don first met at RockyGrass in 2000 and immediately struck up a friendship and musical partnership that lasted through the years. They played in several bands and maintained their friendship as the bands came and went. Since they live over 100 miles apart, they don’t get to play as often as they’d like, but each time the music seems to start right back up where it left off.

Gregg and Don decided to make a recording sitting across from each other in the studio like they would play at the house or at a festival campground. They wanted the recording to capture the conversation between their two instruments in a natural and dynamic way without trying to fix every note and making everything line up to a grid.

One track is from a live performance/recording they did in the studio with an audience present. The event featured nature video footage projected to accompany each tune they played.

The recording is available as a download on Bandcamp with a small number of copies available on CD after November 23 for those who prefer physical media.

Gregg teaches at Guitar Associates in Albuquerque as well as at the Ghost Ranch Bluegrass Camp and the Pagosa Springs Folk & Bluegrass Festival camp. Don won the video scholarship contest for the 2019 Monroe Mandolin Camp, and did the graphic production/design on transcription books for John Reischman and David Benedict.
