Echo in the Mountains

What's better than a Memorial Day weekend bluegrass festival? One that is free and in a cool, mountain valley! It was offered by Frozen Head State Park and sponsored by local businesses.

There was a small but respectable crowd, mostly families. People came and went throughout the afternoon. And all attention was focused on the music. Well, almost all.

There were cloggers.

There were fans who just kicked back and relaxed.

But mostly there was music and mountains. Band quality was outstanding; everyone played at a high, professional level. My favorite of the day, mostly because of their choice of material, was a band called Rough Edges.

But I have to include a picture of Cumberland Gap Connection, because the fellow playing stick bass is from Salyersville, KY.
