I remember coming here when I was nine, ten and eleven years old, and over the years this event was the one thing that stood out in my mind. I am now 31 years old and I plan on bringing my own children this year. I am just so happy that I was able to find out that this festival is still happening. One of my dreams as a child was being able to sing with the bands.

Last year went very well considering that it was the first fest in nine or ten years. This year we hope to do even better. We could have used more upright bass players, fiddlers and groups to perform.We will have plenty of areas to start jams,connect with other players, etc.
