Mountain Music Show 5/9/17

This week I continued with music from previous years of the Henry Reed Memorial Fiddlers Convention. This was a batch of old-time competition winners from the 2016 festival. The 1st half of the show featured old-time band winners & the 2nd half had 1st-2nd old-time individual winners.

On Saturday May 13 I'll feature the bluegrass competition winners on the New River Jamboree show 3-4 PM, plus the combined categories: bass, mandolin, folk song.

This year's festival is June 9-10 in Newport.
