I'll be there, and hopefully my young friend Kyle 'Cuffie' Pretzl will ride with me.
Post the registration link, Tim, I can't find it.
Anybody in contact with the Camptown Shakers? It'd be great to have them boys back.
I have signed up and sent in my money. I will bring along some funny old banjos, some funny old tunes, and some funny old clothes. This is my one time all year to be among my own kind. Lord, this is a lonely endeavor. I think Lucas is probably the closest minstrel person to me and he's about a three hour drive away. Before I attended this event last year, Dave Kirchner, Bob Flesher, George Wunderlich, and Marty Liebshner were the only other minstrel players I had ever come in contact with. And that occurred over a 16 year period. Can't wait.
I am ashamed to admit that I will be MIA this year. Too many 'family' requirements happened early this year (a favorite niece's wedding in Baltimore this coming weekend, for instance) and I won't have the vacation time available to attend.
Y'all have fun!
I'll be there along with my friend Mike 'Scooter' Aldrich. Our registrations and $$$ are in the mail. Mike does not play any instruments but is a general enthusiast of mid-19th century U.S. history and culture and will nevertheless add color to the proceedings in his inimitable way.
I can't wait to meet you folks who I've only watched on youtube or crossed paths with here!
