Link to photo slideshow of the Americana Festival

Boy does time ever fly around here! I haven’t had time to mess with any more festival photos, so instead I’ve uploaded them all to a web slide show. If you are interested in seeing all 274 photos that I took during the festival (or just want to laugh at how bad of a photographer I am) just click here.

A slide show of Terry’s 143 Americana festival pictures can be found by clicking here.

And for those of you who don’t read my personal blog, you might not know that our dog Maggie had puppies on Tuesday morning. For a slide show of her pups (which she inconveniently had under the winery porch, so we had to move them to our back porch), click here. Thanks to Terry for the puppy slide show! Cheers!

2008 Americana Concert Photos

This year’s Americana Festival was wonderful!  Amazing.  Stupendous.  And just plain fun.  Here are my favorite pics from the actual concerts.  I’ll post more of the great outdoor stuff that happened tomorrow.  But for now, here is a concert recap:

Thursday night was a DVD recording of three Winfield Champions, Mark Cosgrove, Robin Kessinger and Robert Shafer:

On Friday, The Grass Pack opened the show:

Then Dan Miller of Flatpick Guitar Magazine introduced David Grier and Wyatt Rice:

Saturday featured Wil Maring & Robert Bowlin followed by Bryan Sutton and Russ Barenberg:

After Barenberg/Sutton played, David Grier, Robert Bowlin, and Mark Cosgrove all joined them for a few amazing songs:

Then on Sunday the show opened with The Chapman Brothers:

Followed by Josh Williams:

And after Josh Williams finished up, The Chapmans and David Grier joined him for a few songs.  Then at the end they invited Colleen from the Grass Pack to come up and play a song:

Finally, David Grier finished off the festival with one last song:

And here’s a group shot of all the people who hung around Sunday afternoon:

Thanks to everyone who made last weekend a total success.  Clyde and I had a blast and hope that you all did too!

I will post a few more photos and hope to get a link to a slideshow of all my pics tomorrow.  Thanks again!
