A Weekend of Music

In the past few years, hubby has turned his attention from fly fishing to bluegrass and old-time country music.  Which means, whenever we can, we spend a day or two at a music festival.  This weekend was one of the best within driving range--at the Barberville Pioneer Settlement for the Creative Arts.  

Somewhere near 100 groups performed at various venues ranging from an old-fashioned church to outdoor pavillions and a barn.  At the same time, there were workshops on all aspects of bluegrass, folk and old-time country music, even a few on songwriting. 

While I enjoy spending the day listening to banjo and fiddle music, for hubby, there's nothing better than sitting in on a jam.
