sertoma youth ranch festval march 2012

Posted by Brent Knowlton on Thursday, April 26, 2012

i went to the sertoma youth ranch festival last month and had a great time. This event is held near brooksville  right off i75 in west central  florida.

There was a good lineup  with headliners   of the gibson brothers,  david petersen and 1946, the roys,  and others.    i enjoyed a lot  of late night  campground picking also,  i even got to play a new  huber  true  tone  as well as a  1930s  gibson flat head   .   

This was the weekend  following  earl scruggs  passing so  all the banjo pickers on the grounds  were asked to go up on stage on saturday and play a few of his tunes  in his  memory  and appreciation .

I was working with the children's program and didn't make it up on stage for the Earl Scruggs tribute - it was impressive from my perspective beside the stage.
It was a great weekend despite the storm that blew through on Saturday. We got tickets and camping for the November festival while we were there. Hope to meet up with you next time.

Yes we did meet - it was a positive experience all around. One of the other players - Dave, was tickled that folks were stopping by and picking (patiently) with us. I'll be camping in the same area in November. Hope to seeya then.
