Only two more weeks before I leave for the Northwest String Summit! I went last year for my first time and wouldn’t miss it again. The mandolin players that are going to be here are going to be amazing!--Yonder Mountain String Band plays all three nights with Darol Anger on fiddle! This year they’ve got Leo Kottke & Mike Gordon, Keller Williams and Split Lip Rayfield too. All of this is going down June 24-26 at Horning’s Hideout just outside Portland, OR. Check out www.stringsummit.com, they’ve got some funny pictures from last year’s fest!
