Well, It's rainy and dreary out but at least it isn't freezing anymore! We've had some really cold weather for our neck of the woods. Hopefully, that's gone for now.
For all of you bluegrass fans, there is music to be heard in our local area. There is the upcoming Tennessee Shines with a good lineup this month (info at wdvx.com) as well as local groups playing in various places. The Leadbetters play regularly at Wild Wings (check the schedule before you go...........I think they play on the first Tuesday each month).
We want to congratulate Darin and Brooke Aldridge on the release of their new cd. There is a cd release concert for that project on this coming Friday night in Shelby, NC. You can find out about that at their website.
Unfortunately, it's a little too cold for outdoor festivals here in East Tennessee right now. But it's not too early to be making reservations for upcoming events. We have JuneFest coming up June 10-11-12 followed by our September 17-18-19 show. I know that seems like a long time from now but it will be here before you know it. And if you are planning to camp with us, you need to get those reservations in soon.
We look forward to seeing you all here this year. I'll try to keep you updated on the happenings here in Kodak. You can also find us on Facebook on our Dumplin Valley Bluegrass Festival fan page.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Haiti at this time.
