Back Home

Well folks it’s been a couple weeks since my last post, and that is because of the simple fact that I’ve been slacking! 🙂  BUT, I’m back with a vengeance, and have much to share. First, in chronological order, was GottaGetGon in Ballston Spa, NY. It was a 7 1/2 hour drive from Virginia, and each of us took a turn driving halfway. BOY, it was great to get off the road!





What a great group of folks who are passionate about musical tradition. The days were full of guest artist concerts and workshops, and everyone would be playing and singing long into the night.

So all in all, we had a nice trip. The drive was too long, and the weather in New York seems to change at the drop of a dime, but we enjoyed ourselves. 🙂
