  • Freshgrass Fest 2018


    I'm looking forward to that.

    Not bad. I'm just enjoying the bands. Didn't have time to play this year.

    Friday night Trampled By Turtles were good.



    Good set by the Whiskey Road Treaty.


    Della Mae, not bad at all.


    Saturday was a long day, good thing I live close by and went back home and rested a bit.

    This group s from Hudson NY or thereabouts. One of the singers is from North Adams.
    Loved em and they were a lot of fun. Remind me a Lake Side Dive, so if you like Lake Side Dive, you'll dig them



    Rhiannon Giddens is always awesome.




    The Indigo Girls still got it. Who knew.



    Flogging Molly, was and hour plus late. I'm not big in that band, but stayed for a few songs. I have seen them before Too much boom boom bottom end. Don't get me wrong they are good, but you got to be in the mood for em.


    Today, I think I'm gonna dig.

    Twisted Pine.


    This year the show wraps up with Ricky Skaggs, who is traditional bluegrass. I'm looking forward to that.


    One of the southern Berkshire County vendors makes some weird ukes, and a uke banjo called the Firefly. A few minutes with the thing and I was good to go, even though I never played one before. 400 plus bucks.

    I didn't go see Bela Fleck, as I have seen him before.

    I needs a banjo

      Oh, it was sunny and hot as a blue bitch yesterday. I need to get a couple of bottles of water in by early afternoon.

      Had a nice microbrew from Bright Ideas, and then switched over to Texas Blonde Shiner, which is like coors or bud light. 2 16 ounce cans, seemed to keep me hydrated. Plus it's not so much like having a liquid diner and nor so filling. Some of those nice microbrews drink like a big meal.

        Sounds like you're retired already, Mike.

            Oh, really? So you have no desire to put that penis into a woman?

              I was a bit bummed about Ricky Skaggs. He had a torn bicep and was 3 weeks into a 12 week recovery. His arm was in a sling.

              The guys he had backing him up were amazing, but it would have been nice to see him play guitar and mandolin.

                The kid next door works at the art museum.

                He said there was 8000 people there Saturday night. I was guessing 5000.

                The first year they held the Freshgrass fest there were 500 people there.

                I have gone for only the past 4 years, but I have been to every Wilco fest.

                  One thing about the Northeast that must be nice is how close everything is. Down here...everything is a road trip. 5 hours to Dallas. 3 hours to either Austin or San Antone. 6 hours to New Orleans. El Paso...fuggetaboutit...All damn day.

                    Everything IS close that way, but the roads are always congested.. It can be a really miserable experience driving in the great northeast.

                      I get a taste of that whenever I visit my Niece in the Boston area. The congestion is terrible, but I honestly can't say it is any worse than it is down here in the Greater Houston area. We just have it spread over a larger area. One you get, oh say, 30 miles west, east, or north of Houston, it clears out pretty good, and when you duck off onto the State and local roads it's pretty smooth sailing. South, Southeast, of Houston it stays pretty nasty, because, hey, you run out of land, and a helluva lotta people like living on the coast....'Cuz, the Gulf...

                        I live in the rural end of Mass. It's not very congested.
                        Nothing like east of 128 and in Boston.
