Blythe, CA Bluegrass Festival
Thursday, January 26, 2012 @6:20:58 AM
I did a little M.C.'ing at the 25th annual Blythe Bluegrass Festival this past weekend. There were many incredible bands and enjoyed visiting with many old friends, including some fellow BHO members, including NICK HORNBUCKLE of "John Reischman And The Jaybirds."
Some of the other bands performing there included Michael Cleveland And Flamekeeper, Audie Blaylock And Redline, Cody Shuler And Pine Mountain Railroad, The Spinney Brothers, Kenny And Amanda Smith Band, The Special Consensus, Mark Phillips And IIIrd Generation, Lonesome Otis, Hwy. 65, and Just 4 Fun.
All in all, it was a good three days of bluegrass music.
