 a favourite festival memory ...
 
 camping next to a Family with two young kids who were camping for the first time ... they got used to (and embraced) the concept of living in their Family sized tent for that long weekend, and were surprised when sunday arrived as their parents were breaking camp ...
 
 kids: "why are you taking the tent down?"
 
 parents: "it's time to go home"
 
 kids: "i thought we lived here now?"
 
 parents: "no, we're going back to our real house"
 
 kids: "(sigh) i want to live here Forever!" ... huge smiles on parents faces, and ours :)

And just how do you feel about that this year Mr Beru. Apparently things didn't go your way last year?  Evil

 a few years ago, we picked up TBF posters and had a few musicians autograph them at the merch booth over the weekend ...
 
 one day our friend was out meandering about town, and we brought his poster over to the merch booth while Bela Fleck happened to be there ...
 
 when our friend returned, he noticed a new autograph on his poster and asked us about it ...
 
 we told him that we had spotted a guy named Bill Flynn, a hippety-hop DJ "musician" who gained fame by w*rking his turntables, walking through Town Park and we asked him to autograph our TBF posters ...
 
 a classic hundred-mile stare on our friend's face matched the pregnant pause of silence as he ran through revenge options in his twisted mind ... until we confessed that we had crossed paths with Bela Fleck, and watched our friend breathe a sigh of relief, knowing that his TBF poster hadn't been ruined ...

Johnny Cash. Me, "not so sure I am into heavy County Music". He stepped out and just time froze. He was so smooth and rough at the same time. His voice was low and his stature was almost commanding. Goosebump city and I was hooked and he did a full set almost of Swing which I flippin love!

BAM! BOOM! So nailed it.


James Taylor. Epic! He was like so intimate with us as if we were sitting around a living room. YUMMMMM!

When all of a sudden there is an injection of a sound that is not Bluegrass. It just wakes you up and gives you fresh ears when there is such a great mix!

I think my favorite single song from last weekend was when Nora Jones performed "Ripple." That song just kills me.

Honorable mention to Bryan Sutton shredding electric guitar with Greensky Bluegrass, kicking ass.

Astonishing act I'd never heard of before, the Cleverlys. Digger Cleverly might be the funniest person I ever heard, not withstanding his late wife's tragic accident on the mayonnaise farm.

Yes that Ripple was amazing! I'd have to say my personal favorite song was ER pulling out an oldie The Truth at their nightgrass show. Followed closely by their cover of Have a Cigar! Sam Bush's Midnight Rambler was on fire. And though they played quite a few repeats both sets of the Cleverlys were so much fun, I knew the festy goers would love those guys. The only YMSB show I caught was weds on the mountain, and I'll say it was a great show! I haven't been seeing them much since Jeff left and this was the best show I'd seen with the new line-up. Of course everything Thile had his hands on was dope!

Best (10 that I can think of) TBF memories:

1.  First time seeing Strength in Numbers
2.  Watching Willie Nelson in the rain
3.  Catching YSMB doing a tweener in the crowd before they were known.  (That's the story I'm telling myself)
4.  Rain...Snow...Hail...Sun  Sometimes almost all at one.
5.  Always, someone I've never heard of before totally blowing my socks off
6.  David Byrne
7.  Sustainability
8.  the 3 pm shade and constant sounds from the stage at Warner field.  And the night jamming and parties in Town Park
9.  MY first (and next) Rum Ball
10.  Looking forward to next year

One of the very best memories ever was crawling on our stomaches past security horses and laughing so loud, about 6 of us we were broke and spontaneous and showed up on the fly. Busted made us walk out like villans with a horse behind us.I still laugh.

My friend Harry came along 1 year, so white he was blue. So he emerged fro his room for the first day of feast and he looked like the Pillsbery Dough Boy so coated with sunscreen he was all white so funny.
Same guy refused to leave the tarp cause he had to walk through the glow stick people. LOL!!!! They were dancing all around us. So funny. LOL

Up front and about 8 guys surround me with Cigars. I could not get air. I fainted right there. I said excuse me I'm going to faint. LOL

Too many greats and firsts. Never will forget.
