ROUTE 271, WATERFORD, JUST

ANOTHER GREAT ONE!
#11 was a good 'un! The bands were incredible, the food got rave reviews, the music workshops were full and it was all over much too quickly. If you were here, we sure hope you had a good time. If you couldn't make it, be sure to mark your calendar for June 20-21, 2014 and we'll see you then!
As always, both the Friday evening and Saturday lineups were filled with top-notch national, regional and local bluegrass performers. GREAT music was provided by:
+ Special Consensus - Grammy nominated,
chart-toppers from Chicago!
+ The Rarely Herd - Highly entertaining, award-winning band returns!
+ Gooseneck Rockers - New powerhouse group of award winners!
+ Bluegrass Mountaineers - Fine traditional Ohio family band returns!
+ Remington Ryde - Popular Pa. band was a hit here two years ago!
+ Lonesome Highway - Super solid band from West Virginia!
+ Blue Shades - Always great to hear these local favorites!
+ Border Ride - Entertaining band from Pa. and Ohio debuts!
Our ol' buddy John Trout from WYEP-FM's "Traditional
Ties" show and Ligonier's Jeff Bell once again served as emcees,
keeping the show on schedule and adding that "certain something" to the
festivities. (Whatever that may be.) First class sound was provided
Don, Ginger, and Steve of Soaring Eagle Productions, Bedford, PA. (They
get tons of compliments on the great sound from both the fans and
BIG THANKS FROM THE FIREMEN!
