    We just made our reservations this week. We'll be there Wednesday afternoon through Monday morning. Coming early, staying late, just for relaxed traveling and any extra jamming that might happen. Anxious!

    Btw, the new venue is not pet friendly, so plan to leave Fido at home.

    Coming up next weekend!

    We're looking forward to seeing everyone again... Our plans to be there as early as Wednesday have changed, we'll be arriving on Thursday instead, probably late morning or early afternoon. Then we'll be leaving late Monday morning hoping to miss weekend traffic going south, and before then if we're lucky maybe we'll catch a less heavily populated jam on Sunday evening.

    I'll probably mostly be playing banjo, but if there are too many banjos to think straight (which has happened in the past), I'll be playing backup and maybe an occasional break with my mandolin.

    Had a great time... Was good to see you and all there Nick!

    I got to see my first Gil in person and close-up... And saw and held that beautiful blue Girouard 10-string. Wow.

    It's a great festival for bringing folks together from the western USA. Great shows, great music, great friendships!
