Let's start with the big disappointment at the Four Corners Folk Festival in Pagosa Springs, Colorado: No Earl.
They waited until the absolute last minute to announce that Earl Scruggs was too ill to perform. The Legendary Earl Scruggs with Family & Friends performed without him.
They played without a banjo at all until the last two numbers, at which point they brought out Warren Kennison, Jr. -- the guy who did the tablature for Earl Scruggs and the 5-String Banjo.
I wish Earl well and I really hope I'll get a chance to see him perform.
Oh, well. It was a great weekend at the festival, even if it wasn't the weekend I thought I was going to have.
In the coming days I'll be posting about some of the people who I really did see at the Four Corners Folk Festival. Stay tuned.

I really hate that he's not well, but I'm glad I didn't go. He was the main reason I was going, until work interfered. Hope you enjoyed the Stringdusters at least.
