Spring Weekend In Tennessee

Beautiful Spring Weekend

Here are some photos taken this weekend. The weather has been gorgeous this weekend with the dogwoods, redbuds and flowers blooming. Took my Mom to see Mamma Mia (the musical) at the beautiful Tennessee Theater. Last night we attended a great concert by Greenbrier in Gatlinburg. They introduced their brand new cd as well as having some special guests on stage. Then this afternoon we enjoyed strolling through Market Square to see some of the Dogwood Arts Festival events including some music provided by local bands on the stage sponsored by WDVX.
It's nice hearing from you all and knowing that you are planning to join us for JuneFest which is just around the corner. Nice to hear from those of you who are planning to join us in September also. We are really looking forward to seeing you here soon! m

I don't know about you, but I'm getting excited about the upcoming festival season. We are going to have so many talented and entertaining musicians here that the scouts for American Idol should plan a trip to check them out. Which bands are you looking forward to seeing the most? Are you anticipating your own personal discovery that you may have found a new favorite band? Or are you looking forward to seeing some of your old favorites?..........maybe a little of both? Yes, it's a hard call to make. We are always excited about seeing all of our bluegrass friends especially during the days leading up to the shows. Maybe the highlight of your festival experience is all the jamming. That's a lot of fun whether you play an instrument or just play the radio! :)
JuneFest promises to be another great event with the excellent lineup. If you haven't made your reservations yet, please give me a call soon. Campsites and tickets for September are also selling now. And I have to warn you that the campsites are nearly gone for that one. So...........if you are still sitting on the fence about whether you will be attending in 2010, go ahead and jump our way to get the best spots left.
Several of the bands have new cd's (or records.......for those of us old enough to remember vinyl) coming out prior to the festivals. All the bands will have their cd's on sale here and will be anxious to meet you, autograph your purchase and just visit a bit if that's what you want.
By the way................if you will scroll back through a few of the older posts here, you will see my plea for old photos. PLEASE rummage through those old photos and bring me a few for my project. Keep an eye out here and on the facebook fan page for further information as I plan to sweeten the pot a little if you bring me some photos I can use. Who knows??? might even become an important part of my project. Okay............enough blogging for tonight. Thanks for reading and we hope to see you soon!! m

Happy Easter

I found some sure signs of Spring today in the yard. Hope you enjoy them. We wish you a Happy Easter!
