Eastern Ontario Bluegrass Festival 2016

Hubby suggested we go. It was on Lombardy Fairgrounds, on the Victoria Day long weekend. By Sunday afternoon I was so tired, stiff  and creaky from gardening, I thought a break would be good.  It was a grand party, on a hot weekend and it was good to be indoors for a piece. The music is fun. You can go to their web pages and hear it, if you are so inclined. I don't know how that works for copyright laws, but they are on their own!
Do you understand it?!
I giggled.




We wandered about, and found a band member practising his fiddle (above).

 I spotted him later and his t-shirt said:

We grabbed a snack there, and sat at the back. It was good to be able to get up and stand, then sit, as I find it hard to stay in one place.

County Road 44




CR5 Bluegrass


Christine and Dan are the organizers. They had 17 bands, on a three-day schedule.

What a great outing, huge camper vans, great music, I hopped to the links, and so easy to look and listen.

We have music festivals here several times a year, and there's an open stage at the farmer's market each weekend in the summer. Lots of talent for a small town. - Margy
