We wait all year for the best Bluegrass festival in the country. It's called Bluegrass First Class, held in Asheville, NC. Two days & nights of non-stop bluegrass music, performed by some of the top names in Bluegrass in a small venue. (Only 800 tickets are sold.)  

Bluegrass fans are some of the most respectful folks you can ever hope to share an audience with.....everyone is there for the talking, no cell phones, no rowdy drunks, etc. Groups love to interact with the audience as well....they are very fan friendly.

Rhonda Vincent and the Rage (sister of the Vincent in Dailey & Vincent) played on Friday.....and as always, these professionals really know how to put on a great show.  

One fan who was invited on stage (and apparently had done so at another one of Rhonda's shows) had the entire room roaring. Even if you are not a fan of bluegrass, Tod the Bod will have you chuckling too.  'The husband' put this up on utube...we expect it to go viral as Tod's previous antics did before.  Check it out  here.

 Nice way to travel.....
Hummmm....when I was awarded "2004 Professional Teacher of the Year".....I didn't get a bus.  Oh ya.....I can't play music and haven't won every award in the music world either!

What fun! I still remember seeing Steamboat Willy at our local fair about 20 years ago...I know he's a far cry from the bluegrass of today's artists but they're all good aren't they!
