Hi, Dan. My wife and I are driving down from Minnesota, assuming a glacier doesn't swallow us up before we get out of the state. I look forward to meeting you. I've been a FGM subscriber so long that I feel like I know you already.
I'll be there Saturday and Sunday. Forecast is good; the spring weather has been horrible, but the all star cast more than makes up for it.

Bill
I will be heading down for the Thursday show. I am bringing my tent, my guitar, and $6. I am sure that is all I will need....

Looking forward to meeting and playing with you folks!



Early fest jam ....
I'm leaving Virginia this morning on my way to Missouri. I'm looking forward to a great weekend of flatpicking. I'll be taking photos, conducting podcast interviews, and shooting some video footage to post here on the network. It should be fun!

Dan - I gave John Chapman some flyers advertising the Dreadnoughts Unlimited drawings this year. He is at Silver Dollar City today with The Chapmans, but he and Jeremy are going to be at the festival.

Would you put the flyers on your table (or somewhere where folks can pick them up)? It would help a lot.

I wish I could make it - it's only a three hour drive (John and Jeremy are making me feel bad - they're flying in to St. Louis from a gig in Georgia and renting a car to get there!). Perhaps next year.
Next years lineup is shapin up nicely..
Managed to lock the 2008 Winfield Flatpicking Champ Tyler Grant in to the weekend.
DVD shoot thursday with Scott Nygaard, Robert Bowlin and Jack Lawrence , Friday Tyler Grant, Robin Kessinger and David Grier, Sat.. Wil Maring, Tim May, Brad Davis and a jamathon .. There are possible additions , so stay tuned !

Arthur Knowler replied to William Gray's discussion Heavy Picks Anyone?
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
