    The last I heard was the tentative date was the first weekend in Oct.
    My dear friend Walt has a GTG planned for the same weekend that I will be attending. Walt is less than a 30 minute drive from me. Dog gone. It appears that my schedule and Chordie can't meet up.
    Getting back into playing is not going near as well as I would like. More rust in the figures than a 12 year old Ohio vehicle.

    It's been a long road back for me as well. 20 years idle does allow the rust to sink in.

    And yes. It's looking like 10-6,7,8

    OK. It's official. The weekend of Oct. 6-7-8 with the main event on the 7th.

    A weekend of amateur musicians doing what we love to do, make music. And there won't be a chainsaw to be found. :whistle: :)

    If you might be interested, reply to this thread or PM me.

    Thought any musicians might like this short vid. Jamie and his older brother Sean, are the Oshima Brothers. (check out their vids on YouTube) They are pretty amazing. Sean is the lyricist for the songwriting team and Jamie is... well... a singer/multi-instrument musician/producer/genius/etc... they live in Belfast Maine. Their music future looks promising...

    It was a beautiful weekend for an outdoor gathering. Temps in the low 80's with overnight lows in the mid 60's.

    I have 16 of 44 videos uploaded to YT so far. Here is a link to the playlist for anyone that may be interested.

    Here is one of my partner and I doing a couple songs from the list.

    Thanks for the great link. I've gotten trough to #31 so far. Some real talented musicians.
    I loved Amy's voice and especially In Spite of Ourselves. It didn't hurt that I am a big John Prine fan.
    I also liked a lot of the guy in the green sleeveless shirt's playing and songs.
    Sounded like a great time.

    Her voice is incredible! I could listen to her all night.

    That's Jeff with his $4500, Taylor 900 series. Last year was his first time at the event. He can be rather humble and downplays his abilities. The first song he did was Lady by Kenny Rogers (#28) and we were quite taken. Not the voice we expected to hear coming out of a truck driver.

    You'll have to carve out some time in early Oct. and join us next year.
