Hello! Back from Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival... It was quite something how many great musicians stopped by my booth. We had many jam sessions that would happen sporadically as people would try out my instruments around the booth.
I feel my instruments were well received with much positive feedback. I enjoy getting out there and meeting and talking with the people at these festivals. Of course, there were also plenty of great bluegrass bands to see and hear as well. I really enjoyed seeing Blue Highway...
I feel these guys are one of the strongest bluegrass groups in the business. They are excellent song writers and musicians as well as having great vocals. I enjoyed their presence at the festival.
My sons were able to meet some of the musicians who played. Here they are meeting Chris Thile and Michael Daves...
I think that is one of the neatest things about bluegrass festivals, is that the musicians are so approachable and willing to interact with the people that enjoy their music.
I think fun was had by all, and now I look forward to hearing back from the many contacts I made while I was there.
Take Care until next time,
