    Default Bakersfield CA coming up, The Great 48 Jam...

    The Great 48 Jam...

    This is one of our favorite festivals. The only non-camping festival we've attended so far... Indoor, no weather concerns. Jams all over the place at all hours.

    We'll be there Wednesday night through Monday morning. Sounds like we'll have our whole band there at various times. Sweet.

    Only problem is the MCC is not pet friendly, so we have to leave our little dog home with our son (who has little interest in bluegrass).

    Anyone else heading to this festival?
