Festival in Bean Blossom, IN. We Pray it will be a blessing to many.
We now have 2
former Gibson Guitar Corp. employees in our group.

wonderful singers and musicians. We now have 3 banjo

(Aaron is excellent at the thumb-style picking), 2
fiddle players (sometimes twin fiddles are in order), 2 dobro players, an excellent mandolin player, and a fantastic
(doghouse) bass player, and all are wonderful Christians.
I've been playing my

for the Wasepi's, past and present.
