MyJoogTV Live: Martin Garrish and Lou Castro Live at Jimmy's Seafood Buffet

One of the many benefits when vacationing on Ocracoke Island is the vibrant live music scene. Almost every restaurant hosts live music - regardless of the day of week. There is also a community of musical artists that reside on the island that play several musical styles - rock, bluegrass, country, americana. One of our favorites is Martin Garrish who has been playing on the island for over three decades. In fact, he probably would have had a successful career if he ever decided to relocate to Nashville or Austin - but Ocracoke is his home.

Lou Castro is also an easy musician to find. Along with playing with Garrish, he is a member of several bands: Molasses Creek, Coyote, and the Aaron Caswell Band. And many of you may recall him in his appearance in "Nights In Rodanthe". For me, I will always recall his guitar playing whether its the acoustic Dobro - fortified into a Hawaiian styled guitar - or jumping and walking on rails playing his electric guitar. Don't know if its his Berklee School of Music degree or years of practice; but the guy can play.

Here are several songs from Martin and Lou at  Jimmy's Seafood Buffet:

MyJoogTV Episode 1: Cadillac Sky at Tarara Vineyard & Winery

This episode features bluegrass sensation Cadillac Sky in a discussion of wine and music with Jordan Harris, the winemaker at Tarara Vineyard & Winery. We discussed the similarities between the two occupations: wine makers and musician. During the discussion we sampled three yet to be bottled wines in Tarara's new "Nova" series. These wines are made from the best grapes grown in specific vineyards or appellations and the futures are actually already sold out. Thanks also to Echo Propp, from WAMU Bluegrass Country, for co-hosting. The video is available to download for iTunes and Windows Media Player.

Andrew McKnight @ Catoctin Creek Distilling Company

Yesterday we filmed episode 6 of MyJoogTV with Andrew McKnight and Scott Harris of Catoctin Creek Distilling Company. We learned several new facts, particularly how to distill organic rye whiskey and how McKnight and the Harris' are kindred spirits regarding the eat, drink, and play music locally music.The Roundstone Rye we sampled was excellent, lighter than many bourbons, but flavorful and completely smooth at the tail.  The highlight of the afternoon was listening to McKnight perform "Letter to Mosby" while sitting on an oak barrel in front of the still. Thank you Gentlemen. At, we are followers of "Free the Grapes, now its time to Free the Shine:
