Re: Austin, TX - Austin String Band Festival
i only got to go for the first night. Rich Hartness and the Pickled Beats were fun. Lots of contra dancing with extra vigorous stomping. Ben was there with his musical partner (who I do not know; she has a lovely voice), and they put on quite a show. The jamming later on was highly enjoyable. I didn't crawl into my sleeping bag until three, and then was up early to jam a while longer before I had to head on down the road.
Ben is right about this becoming a fave event. It is the best time of year for camping in Texas with pleasant evenings, and crisp, cool mornings. Talented acts and great jams. I wish i hadn't had to leave. Missed you, HiddnKat. Where were you jamming?
