We're famous !!!!!!!

I was playing some dinner music for my camping club when I noticed a photographer, who got us on the cover of Bluegrass Now magazine last
year. I waved him over and he started taking meter readings and climbing all around us looking for a shot. When the song was over , he told me that he was contracted to get another shot of us. He said he wanted something different than last year , and asked if we could use " THAT " Airstream
( mine ) as a backdrop. Bottom line....My AS ( and my friends, and THE mandolin ) made it on the cover of the January 2005 issue of Bluegrass Now magazine. She was sporting her new sunglasses, that SJRV put on for me.
I will try not to let fame go to my head . Ha Ha ( kidding )

I love Bluegrass! When/Where will you be playing in 2005? Any festivals? I hope that I can catch your performance. Now that you're famous and all.

Blue Grass in Tennessee

We have a festival every year here in Chattanooga, TN. I've been volunteering with the festival for about 10 years now and it just keeps getting better! The web site is:

IIIrd Time Out, Lonesome River Band, Dismembered Tennesseans, Norman and Nancy Blake are just a few of the acts.

This festival started to honor Boxcar Pinion who died of lung cancer and part of the funds we make goes to the American Cancer Society.

Dates and prices are listed on the web site. Ya'll come on out and join us!
