Essay contest

Tommy Cowett’s Essay Contest I was the winner of a $25 gift certificate from Scott Miller‘s Bone Dry Musical Instrument Company in the drawing held on Saturday night of Bones Fest XIV. I want to award this certificate to the winner of an Essay Contest.


My thoughts for the essay contest would be success stories of how a rhythm bones player has been able to join in playing with musicians in vari-ous styles. I want the story of how they were able to fit in or sit in at gigs with bluegrass, country, rock, folk etc.


The winner would be the story I feel could best help other rhythm bones players in breaking the ice and joining a band. I heard some pretty good stories at the Bones Fest, so put them in writing and you might win.


Email your story to me at or snail mail it to me at 4538 Brandt Ridge Road, Greensboro, NC 27410. This will be fun. Tommy Cowett
