I am thinking about going, though I haven't signed up yet. I will have to drive by myself from northern Minnesota. I have not been to very many gatherings or festivals. I went to Bean Blossom a couple of times in the 70's when Bill Monroe was still around, and I was living just up the road in Nashville , Indiana. But I didn't fit in all that great with the Bluegrass folks. They were very nice to me, (a hippie girl) but I knew clawhammer and the Seeger strum, not Bluegrass picking. Now I am working on Minstrel style and melodic pieces, and building a fretless minstrel banjo.

Hey M'Lou- I'm not attending this event, but I can tell you that both Greg Adams and Pete Ross (teaching the 19th century program there) are super friendly fellows and both are terrific teachers.  If you go, you'll have a great time!  Ken Perlman's ok too.  (HAHAH Ken just teasing!)
