Hey, j0 ~~ I will likely be there somewhere along the line, though time is a bit tight this weekend ~~ high school state volleyball tournament at Conway is competing for my attention. About the only thing certain at the moment is that I will likely be at the Folk Center for the gospel show on Sunday night.

One small addition: while listing the members of Hook, Line, and Sinker, I failed to add fiddler Scotty Branscum who joined the group this year. (I'm sure everyone wanted to know that)

Anyone who goes, please say hello to my new folkie-friend, by way of Harpgirl, Bill Erskine. Great guy, wonderful musician, and if you need a deeeeep bass to give some solid ground to your four-part harmony, he's tha' man.

Wish I could be there with you, it really does sound like a gas. So to speak.

Does Bill Erskine play the whistle and maybe the bagpipes? If he doesn't, then I don't guess I know him.

J077 and Dale, Thanks for the plugs for Bean Fest. This is our last big weekend and a great time to visit Mountain View. Town has about 2500 residents and there are probably more music instruments per capita than anywhere else in the country. During Bean Fest, about the only place you won't find music is the Wal-Mart parking lot, but that is not guaranteed. Door's open. Y'all come.

OMIGAWD!!! That'd be a sight! I know he does play whistle, so I guess he pipes, too? His voice is in the Tennessee Earnie Ford range.

Besides the Outhouse race, very great fun!, and Bean Cookout/Eatout - many jokes, there was lots of variety including a Highland Piper :0) I will post some pics tomorrow.

Cajun, excellent Box player, old timey including Billy Mathews - one of the best oldtime fiddlers in the Ozarks, Henry The Fiddler - amazing fiddle wizard h+fiddler@ibm.net Idahoe/Colorado Muddies probably know Henry, several local fiddlers all excellent, Bob and Deborah Davis - Celtic / Bluegrass, DeeAnne Gilespie the Fiddle Goddess(has a web site) - these are just some of the musicians I managed to jam with. Several Bluegrass groups including David Branscombe - very good, my favorite Bluegrass Singer in the South. David plays Guitar and his wife plays Bass. David is also excellent on Banjo and (rare thes days!)plays Clawhammer style as well!

There were so many visiors at the Bean Fest that parking was a big problem. Eventualy found a space three blocks from the Town Square. I was very lucky too.

High points - probably the fun and complaining when the Bag Piper played, the Pib Mor is fairly loud. Hearing some superb Cajun Accordian, Billy Mathews old timey fiddling, The Nelson Family of Arkansas at the Folk Center on Sun evening.

Jamming late Saturday till 3am Sunday morning missed the Gospel show at the Folk Center apologies to Dale, it was nearly impossible to locate people in the large crowd, which was bigger than Winfield!

BTW There is NO CHARGE or ticket required for Pickin on the Sqare at Mtn View. City and State did a great job with services as did the vendors with food etc.

Next big festival is Folk Fest in spring, but there are a few smaller ones before that time.

You know, one year Cathy and I and our friends the Atchisons and the Momiches took second place in the outhouse race. I still have a silver painted toilet seat somewhere in the house. The following year we took first place in the outhouse decoration and team costume competition. We did a Hawaiian theme "The Hula Hole." There's a picture in some book about Stone County with Cathy in the driver's seat and a moo-moo. That year, however, we almost took out a spectator in the race and were disqualified. dave

Henry still fiddles on, the folk world would not be the same without Henry, his has a different approach to jamming.
