Cornish Bluegrass Festival

Posted by AndyC100 on Saturday, September 26, 2015

Just back from the annual Cornish Bluegrass Festival and this was another first for me, tagged along with a mate, Meanbean on Hangout, who has been a couple times before....

Really didnt know what to expect during the festival but kicked everything off with numerous bands on the first evening, Sons of Navarone, 4 Wheeled Drive, Flats & Sharps and Harpeth Rising were particular favorites for me.

The following day we attended a several workshops, two of which being the banjo beginners and even the advanced, although attempted the advanced banjo workshop was somewhat out of my depth at the minute but nethertheless still very much enjoyable.  The rest of the day was spent listening and watching jam sessions that just popped up everywhere and was amazed at how the groups grew throughout the day, talking to others was extremely valuable gaining so much knowledge and experience.

The weekend was certainly a great success and will most certainly be attending next year, hopefully may even be tempted to take the banjo out of the case and try some backup by them, but will depend on progress through the year.

Had a great time and would very much recommend this festival......

Hi Derek, good to hear from you, did you by chance venture to Cornwall last weekend.... would have been good to catch up with you, still going strong with the Stelling I hope, I have slightly customised the Aria now with a white frosted head and some bronze strings and sounding sweet at the minute...

No didn't get to Cornwall as I was in Crete, may be next year. Tend to spend more time on the guitar these days, much easier to play. Glad you are still happy with the Aria, I like the frosted head better than the clear one.
