JuneFest 2009

If you weren't here this past weekend, then you missed a great 3 days of music and jammin'. Mother Nature threw a little ugly weather at us but it just kept us on our toes and the show went on. We had some beautiful weather as well. There were a lot of new faces in Dumplin Valley as well as many old ones who came out to enjoy the shows. I'm going to post some photos to give you an idea of the quality of the shows and the fun we all had.
It was our privilege to be host to some of the finest bands & musicians in the bluegrass world. Some bands were making their first appearance at Dumplin Valley:
JD Crowe, The Gibson Brothers, Williams & Clark Expedition, Carrie Hassler & Hard Rain, Josh Williams Band and also Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road. Every single one was well received. And we were happy to have the bands who had entertained us before.
There were many encores & standing ovations throughout the weekend as the JuneFestivarians were very appreciative of the bands they enjoyed.
Joe had a blast singing with some of the bands. Several times I heard "I see a bus in your future"! ha ha
Here are a few photos from the weekend. Please enjoy them and tell your friends to come out and join us in September for our 10th Annual Dumplin Valley Bluegrass Festival. Be sure to check back soon for more information.
