"Big Al" Weekley - Lexington Nebraska may not be a city you are familiar with or have even heard of. But every Saturday night, Big Al weekley cranks up 50,000 watts of directional bluegrass music that can be heard over the entire western half of the US and southwest Canada.

Odds and Ends
Bluegrass-flavored "Man of Constant Sorrow" won Single of the Year at the 2001 CMA awards where Dan Tyminski finally received national recognition for being the singing voice of George Clooney. This is the first time a song has won that was never in the top-40 (country radio generally refused to play the song). The triple-platinum "O Brother" sound track won Album of the Year. Larry Cordle's "Murder on Music Row" was named Song of the Year. The Osborne Brothers are cutting back on their schedule after 40 years of performing. Retirement? Sonny says the brothers will still perform the Opry and some festivals and perhaps do some more recording. So it looks like a semi-retirement, and one well deserved. A Bluegrass Benefit held Oct 30 in Berkeley, California raised $4,762 for the New York Firefighters 9-11 Disaster Relief Fund. The attendees enjoyed music from Detour, The Bluegrass Intentions, Jody Stecher and Kate Brislin, Laurie Lewis & Tom Rozum, Mike Marshall & David Grisman and Peter Rowan.
