Wind Gap, PA - August 2, 2013

Wow! We had a great time playing at the beautiful Bayard Cutting Arboretum in Great River, NY, this afternoon. What a great venue and super audience. Although the on and off rain forced us into the carriage house barn, it didn't dampen anyone's spirits .

On Friday, August 2nd, we will be appearing at the Appalachian Fiddle and Bluegrass Association festival in Wind Gap PA. Friday looks to be a very oldtimey friendly day at this, mostly bluegrass, festival. We (The Homegrown String Band) will be performing along with PA oldtimers The Lost Ramblers, cowgirl yodeler Texas Rose, and legendary old time string band The Freight Hoppers. For bluegrassers, over the course of the four day festival, you will hear James Reams, Dan Paisley, Special Consensus, and Nothin' Fancy among others. This festival takes place at beautiful Mountainview Park in Wind Gap, PA, Thursday through Sunday, August 1-4. Come for a day or the whole weekend of banjos, fiddles, string bands, bluegrass, and good times! We will be doing two sets on Friday at 11:30 AM and 9:25 PM. We will also be facilitating fiddle and dance workshops on Saturday, August 3rd.
