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 .
