I have been to "Bluegrass" for most of the past 20 some years in all sorts of weather - hot, cold, wet, windy, and the rare perfect day. This year was a hot year. A steaming, sweaty, miserable 94 degrees. We drank a lot of water and snacked on anything cold.
But we don't go to the festival for the weather. We go for the music. Lots and lots of music. There are four stages of musicians playing non-stop from 9:00 AM to midnight. And it's not just bluegrass music. There is folk, celtic, western swing, gospel, and assorted combinations - anything that can be played on acoustic instruments. Yesterday, I heard the Hallelujah Chorus played on guitar, Charlie Parker jazz on a fiddle, and more than one Beatles song on whatever instrument was at hand! My personal favorites are John McCutcheon, the marvelous singer/songwriter/story teller/folk musician,
