Delaware Valley Bluegrass

I camped at the Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival for the fourth time this Labor Day weekend. We had a pretty big compound this year, I’d say almost 20 people, so lots of jamming went on. As for the acts this weekend, there were some great bands again. I really enjoyed Marty Stuart, who I saw […]

Wintergrass / ERC

On Friday night we went down to Wilmington to check out the Wilmington Winter Bluegrass Festival. It’s the same deal as other festivals, except it’s in a hotel. Weird at first but people just jam in the hallways and conference rooms instead of around campfires in a field. I have to say I prefer the […]

Traveling a lot

I’ve been doing a lot of traveling lately. I was home a total of 4 days in May, and then I was away the first two weeks of June. Here’s a recap of the most interesting stuff: San Francisco Eddie Rickenbacker’s is a fantastic bar that has all these old motorcycles hanging from the ceiling […]

Red Stick Ramblers in the area

My favorite band will be up in the northeast quite a bit this year. I recommend checking them out at one of these shows if you’ve never seen them before. The best part is that I go to these places any way, and they’ll just happen to be there. February 28 – World Cafe Live […]

The Avett Brothers / Langhorne Slim

I went down to the Grand Opera House in Wilmington for a concert earlier this week. The venue itself was very nice and had great acoustics, although it wasn’t really the kind of venue I’d picture for the Avett Brothers. My parents saw them play at the Troc last year, which is much more suitable […]

crafts / Christmas

This past week I’ve been catching up on some knitting and sewing I’ve been meaning to do for a while. I really haven’t done much of anything in the way of crafting in several months. I travel so much for work that I’m rarely home and then have so much other stuff to get done […]

Bourbon Street / Blue Moon / Blackpot

As a quick update on the missing luggage, I finally let myself be convinced to buy new clothes that night. After purchasing them, and also new toiletries, I went back to my hotel room only to find my luggage had been delivered while I was shopping. One of the bags was ripped, but they were […]

Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival

Last weekend was my second time at the festival down in Woodstown and it was even more fun than last year. We had some great camping neighbors who we jammed with. I actually bought a mandolin and the one woman who lives near me is going to help me learn to play it. The one […]

Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival

I was at Grey Fox last month and it’s definitely something I’m going to be going to every year. They had a dance pavilion for one thing which was so much fun, especially since the Red Stick Ramblers played on it every night. Also lessons during the day. Corey Ledet and the Wilders were on […]
