June 12th & 13th – Fiddler’s Convention in Virginia

For those who might be interested, here is the information on a Fiddlers Convention in the mountains of Virgina. http://www.gilesmountainstringband.com/henryreed.html I will be going to this and it should be a lot of fun and a lot of jamming. It’s the second week in June and is about a 6 hour drive from Marietta. You can check out some of Henry Reed’s music at the library of congress website here: http://lcweb2.loc.gov/ammem/collections/reed/index.html This convention is put on by a banjo builder friend of mine, Chris Via you can check out his site here: http://www.gilesmountainstringband.com/oldviabanjos.html I will also be setting up some recording equipment with a friend of mine from Maryland and we will be recording some of these old timers for posterity. It should be a hoot! -Neil
