All in all, it was a lot of fun!
Following Weekend was Mineral Springs in Stafford Springs CT
We had a great time at Mineral Springs Bluegrass Festival. It was the first time there for everyone in the band but me (Kelly). I drove down last year because my friends were playing there. Bruce was working with the brothers and couldn't go. They had The Old Time Bluegrass Singers, Grassroutes and TrueGrass.
Those bands were all there again this year, along with Phil Zimmerman's band Last Fair Deal (who played a lot of the non bluegrass tunes you would hear if my ipod were on shuffle, John Hiatt, Gillian Welch, Bob Dylan etc. They were fun, and Tom had a sweet little button accordion.
Tex was sporting a new guitar from Ebay, it's a pretty sweet Martin.
Eileen Anderson took some nice photos of us onstage.
Looks like we're invited back for next year, and we're looking forward to it! Thanks to Bill Goodale for hiring us (he was the first festival promoter to hire us last year) and to Harry Grant for doing sound. We tried out our new microphone, Audix SCX-25 (lollipop mic bought from Cobra sound who did sound at Strawberry Park). Reviews were great of our sound, we'll keep using it.
We're off to Hancock NH tonight (Thursday July 7th), Keene NH tomorrow (July 8th) at Fritz Fries, Newbury NH Saturday (July 9th), and Greenfield MA Tuesday (July 12). Check our schedule online for details.
Hope to see you soon!
