Mudcatters at Vandalia gathering?

Annie and I are at our parents in Charleston, WV this weekend and are spending some time up at the Vandalia Gathering. It just occurred to me that other mudcatters from the environs who I haven't met may also be going. Thought I would post this and see. If so, it would be great to arrange to meet. I know this is late to be posting this inquiry, but will check back in tomorrow to see if there are any responses.

Wish I was going to be there Kent, and would love to meet you, but no travel for me this weekend.

However, I am considering going to the "prefestival" at Clifftop this summer. Do you frequent that environ?

I'll be there.

Check the Westman's Bowed Psaltry booth. If I'm not there, they'll probably know where I am.

Hope to see you.

We hope to be there at least one day, but are shooting for Friday night and Saturday. Thanks for the reminder. The time is fast approaching.

Russ and Kent,

Some friends from Morgantown down for Vandalia stopped by to play for Annie at the hospital and greatly lifted her spirits, but we both really missed being there. Would love to have you share your personal reflections and highlights from the Gathering.

Janie,

It was a beautiful day, hot but not scorching. The girls danced just about all day Saturday, and their proud Papa spent the day watching. Will post a link to a video as soon as it is edited. Wish you and Annie could have been there. I'm praying for y'all.

Russ,

I planned to stop by the Westman's bowed psaltry booth to find out about re-stringing (or re-hairing or whatever you call it) our psaltry bow and to meet you. It was getting late so I rushed back to the car, bent down to fish the bow out of the back seat, and heard a most disturbing sound. Fabric ripping. Chino pants fabric. Not a good sound to hear two hours from home, surrounded by thousands who didn't wish to know my personal answer to "Boxers or briefs?" Out came the shirt-tails and I CAREFULLY did my best old-man shuffle over to the square dance area, collected the girls, and home we came. Sorry I missed you. Maybe next year. Maybe at Glenville.

I notice Frank George was on the schedule. He was scheduled for Glenville (West Virginia State Folk Festival) last year, too, but didn't end up coming. I understood he was in pretty frail health.

Was he able to be there for Vandalia?

I don't know if he performed or not, but he and Jane were there. We saw them at the Morris Dancing on Saturday. (I don't know them, but someone pointed them out to me.) They looked frail, but happy.
