Granny Tells You What's Going On

Hi from Morganton, North Carolina

We had a wonderful day yesterday at the Red, White and Bluegrass Festival here in Morganton. It was a big crowd for a Wednesday, and a super line-up. I especially enjoyed seeing Heather Berry, Junior Sisk, and the SteelDrivers; none of whom will be appearing at Michigan festivals we will attend this summer.

Heather Berry and Tony Mabe aren’t a bluegrass act, but knew they were at a bluegrass festival. Tony pulled out the banjo for a lot of their set. He is proficient on many instruments, I saw an arch top guitar, autoharp, and banjo. Heather has the voice of a songbird. I enjoyed seeing them.

The SteelDrivers were amazing. Chris Stapleton can write ’em and sing ’em. They call their music “uneasy listening”, and I agree. But it was a fabulous trip!

Junior is bluegrass, and how. Saw him last summer, but spent most of that day attending to GD1, GD2 and GS3, so missed a lot of the show. I saw all of their show yesterday, and enjoyed every minute.

Three more big days here, come on over if you are in the neighborhood.

    We saw the SteelDrivers on Wednesday. They were actually one of the reasons we made the trip. They were awesome. North Carolina’s own Balsam Range was very good also. Ten bands appeared here that we had never seen on stage for a full set. (A few we had seen at IBMA for short show cases) We really enjoyed the diverse line-up. Now, for some sleep.
