Camped for two nights in Battle Ground, Ind., for an old-time music event billed as the Indiana Fiddlers' Gathering, June 27-29. They have been having it for years now.
Sold two minstrel banjos and a "Baby" Martin guitar, with the hopes of soon buying a Ramsey minstrel banjo that I played recently at Mars Hill College down in North Carolina.
But back to Battle Ground. I heard, learned and played a bunch of midwestern fiddle tunes that I was previously not familiar with, being that I am a recent transplant from the south.
These midwestern tunes are generally notier that southern fiddle tunes, but they were relatively easy to pick up and play after a few go arounds. A lot of fiddle players in attendance from the Chicago area.

I think you sold that guitar to a friend of mine. The lady that bought it brought it by our camp! Battleground is lots of run. Enjoy.

I'm sorry I didn't get to meet anyone from BHO. I helped set up on Friday afternoon, and spent all evening there Saturday, but I was chasing a 1 year old all over the place and didn't get a lick of picking done. Next year I hope to 'work' again, but I want to make time for 'playing'.
