What a great day we had today! The weather was absolutely gorgeous, so much so Randy and I both are showing a bit of the sun on our faces and arms! :)
We went to Century, FL for a dulcimer festival being held at a county campground called Lake Stone. It is about an hour and a half from Summerdale. It was a scenic drive and went very quickly. The campgound is a small one and sits at the edge of . . . Lake Stone! Isn't that convenient. :) The campground was full of musicians this week. And several of us came up for the day.
Once we found our friends, we sat around chatting for awhile. Both of the groups I play with, Jam N Folks and Jubilee Pickers planned to play during the Open Stage portion of the festival. That was to begin at 1pm. Each group got to play two pieces of music. Altogether there were 18 acts signed up for Open Stage. Our groups were numbers 2 & 3 respectively, so we got to play early and relax and enjoy the rest of the acts. There was one group whose members were teenagers. It was great to see young people interested in Appalachian instruments!
I couldn't get the pictures to load tonight, so check out this site. Enjoy!
