I have been calling Merlefest the 2nd best fest in America .. I now believe that spot is a tie tween Winfield and Merlefest..

Hey Bill,
Dan & I are ready to go...we've got our reservations, and I'm working on getting some other people to come for the day. I had a great time last year....even though the rain caused a "little river" through our booth last year. We'll see you soon! Say hi to Marilyn. Cindy

I went to Merlefest in 1997 and 2003. I keep an excellent souvenir of this festival and the atmosphere.

I plan to attend the event in 2011 I had a blast last year 2010
I attended one of Pete Wernicks Bluegrass Jam camps
As a bonus we did have the chance to play on the Cabin stage

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…"
