This is non-profit, just keeping bluegrass alive in the mountains of western Virginia.
You'll see a father and son photo. The father won 3rd in the Dobro, and the son 1st in bass. Nobody knew this when the photograph was taken down in the camp, it was just about the father wanting a photo with himself and his son.
Just wanted to share a little part of Virginia and a lot of musicians that weren't just from Virginia. They came from Vermont, TN, Maine, and more.
You don't have to compete to camp on the Maury River during the festival. Music goes on into to dawn.
