Adam McMillan and I are both down here. First show I saw was in the traditional stage with David Holt and Doc Watson. I’m so happy I was able to hear Doc live, his songs are that much better when you here the story that goes behind them.
It was fun for me tooo to hear people talk the way I used to talk before moving north and the choice of words being used. Justa downhome colloquial usage that goes perfect with porch band music and picking.
There were soem acts here that were a little to rocking out for me. Like the Duhks from Manitoba CA. I love their studio work but live to much drums usage.
Wile and the West would be my surprise favorite making cowboy music hip again. and one heck of a yodeler from Montana.
Saw Peter Rowan and Tony RIce playinga set together which wasa treat…only half an hour but still worth it.
The show goes on media were invited to a special midnight jam aso I maybe headed back tonight.
Thats it from Wilkesboro, NC for now. Paul
P.S. I got so sunburned from Friday. If you go to outdoor festivals remember the sunblock!
