GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE Version 2, June 1991 Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc. 51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110, USA Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed. Preamble The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too. When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things. To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it. For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights. We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software. Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors' reputations. Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all. The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow. GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program" means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you". Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program does. Hayseed Dixie | For The Country Record

Hayseed Dixie @ the O2 Academy, Liverpool, UK | January 28th, 2015 – Review

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you’ve read my review of Hayseed Dixie’s album ‘Hair Down to my Grass’ then some of what I’m about to say may come as no surprise.

From the opening riffs of Hells Bells to the final chords of Comfortably Numb this was a concert that oozed energy and enthusiasm from both the band and the audience alike. It was a cold Wednesday in January and so the turnout may not have been expected to be as much as it was, but despite it being a small venue, it was packed.

Hayseed Dixie ‘Hair Down To My Grass’ – Album Review

hayseed-dixie

With Hayseed Dixie’s upcoming studio album ‘Hair Down To My Grass’ (due January 12), I questioned their ability to do each song well, as there are some big songs on offer with an eclectic mix of genres being transposed into their own ‘Rockgrass’ genre. Too, there is no percussionist in Hayseed Dixie, and with some heavy songs I again questioned whether maybe other songs may have been best suited to their expertise. However, being a big Weird Al Yankovic fan, I was looking forward to an album of covers that were taken out of their original genre and all bunched into one, despite the fact they handle the changing of the music over the lyrics in this instance. So as it is a collection of very different songs, I decided to take us through the album discussing each track, instead of an overview. Read on for more.

“I enjoyed this and . . . on further investigation . . . it’s not good . . . it’s fabulous!” – Brian May, Queen

“This is great! I can’t wait to get the royalty check!” Gene Simmons, KISS

The brand new album from hillbilly artists Hayseed Dixie, entitled ‘Hair Down To My Grass’, comes out Jan 12th. Hayseed Dixie began in the summer of 2000 in the fertile valley of Deer Lick Holler, deep in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains of East Tennessee USA. In this area which was completely isolated from outside cultural and musical influence, the boys grew up playing the traditional music of their forefathers on banjo, fiddle, mandolin, acoustic guitar and acoustic bass.
