We have a big Bluegrass festival around here every year, and there are a number of good players here. One is a teen ager who is on mandolin and really terrific. A couple of years ago we did a training in Nashville and one of the staff was a fiddler. She played a couple of tunes for us and she was amazing, fast, accurate rendition of Foggy Mountain Breakdown even Earl Scruggs would applaud. :laugh2:Yes Tom, I enjoy playing tenor banjo, mandolin banjo and mandolin. Just for my own fun.
@pinehunter It's called the Route 66 Bluegrass Festival in Victorville, CA, at the fairgrounds. Features local and regional groups. Attached is a youtube video or two of the performers last year. It will be over the Father's day weekend this year. Great fun! If you want to come, fly in to the Ontario (ONT) airport and head over the I-15, up the Cajon Pass and drive to the Roy Rogers exit, the fairgrounds is on 7th street. Hotels in the area are not expensive. Don't know the admission price.Hi Tom thanks for your note. You are very lucky to have a large Blue Grass interest in your area - keep it up. Are there any internet uploads regarding the festival?
