Hey banjo people,

A friend of mine just sent me a photograph of himself with his dad and brother standing next to the Foggy Mt. Boys bus. He doesn't remember any details but he said it was taken at a concert F & S played in ether 1963 or 1964. He said it was either a show in Ann Arbor MI or East Lansing MI. He does not remember.

I know it's a long shot, but maybe someone out in banjo world might actually know which of those cities they played in back in 63 or 64. Perhaps they played in both cities.

It's a cool photo.

Thanks

They played a concert in Ann Arbor in 1963, but that was in November, and that picture does NOT look like Ann Arbor in November.

Have you tried contacting Danny Clark, from the Bluegrass Bus Museum?

Indeed, that is definitely not a November in AA photograph.

I stood in front of that bus Aug. 30 1964 at Sunset Park in Jennerstown PA.  (The autograph was added in the late 1990s at an IBMA Gibson-sponsored meet & greet with the older gentleman.)

Wow!  That is so very cool!  You have a real treasure right there.  Thank you for sharing.  I co-authored the first biography of Earl and we encountered many such photographs like the one you shared. Love it!
