Yesterday was the 5th Annual Bluegrass Festival and my 4th time at the Lake County Writers’ Group booth. We set up at 7 a.m. and tore down around 6 p.m. A long day, but the weather was bright and sunny with only a hint of a breeze, so the weather was perfect. Besides our booth, there was everything from tie-dye to hats to jewelry to crafty stuff. Tons of food and this cute little stand helped quench our thirst. The unending music ranged from old fashioned picking to yodeling to county with lots of banjoes, mandolins, and fiddles. Our local Konocti Fiddlers Club was there (with a lot of fiddle players that are also in the Youth Orchestra with Max) and many other duos, trios and huge groups. At the Anderson Marsh State Park, where the event is held, there is a big old house that is the park center with a huge covered front porch. For the Festival, three or four spinning wheels were going at all times and small clumps of musicians could be found in various places practicing and tuning up. Our local radio station presented the music live, so those who didn’t want to come in person could still hear it all.
