Its official, festival season has begun! SO HAPPY!
Good Thing: Yonder Mountain String Band's 8th Annual Northwest String Summit was a great success this year. Randy, Suzye, Sydney and my brother Hal and I ventured down to Bob and Martha Horning's Property to see some truly amazing hippie bluegrass awesome extravaganza goodness.
Here Is a List of good things at NWSS:
-Stephie and Matt put together a truly incredible camp and I can't thank them enough for all their hard work, the food, shade structures, music and lights were the best in the whole venue!
-The line up was not as big as last year but still great. Highlights included the Infamous Stringdusters and Del McCoury.
-Yonder's Friday night set was, in my opinion, the best and totally set the weekend off for a hell of a time.
-Strings For Industry's Late Night set on Saturday night was totally deadly good. The played funk, swampgrass, and a girl led cover of "Layla" that almost burnt the trees down.
-The SPACE STATION! Thats right, on saturday night in the middle of Yonder's set the Space Station flew over clearly visible to the naked eye. The best part is that the whole show stopped and looked right at it in silence, thousands of people just staring at the sky in silence, the band started screaming, "CAN YOU SEE IT? CAN YOU SEE IT?!!!" and then when right back into the song, holy shit!
-Me and Sydney Got rings! They are pretty cool and they match and everything. They have two bands for the two of us!
