What a great concert that must have been. I love to listen to music and that would have been fun to go to.

Wow...a bluegrass festival! I used to set up as a vendor at these and have sort of forgotten about them since becoming an RVer. This sounds like a great way to unwind for a weekend and am certainly going to add this to my list of things to look out for. Is there a particular website you use to find them?
