All this talk of upcoming festivals has got me highlighting dates on my calendar. This year’s festival season is looking great. With so many good festivals to choose from, deciding which ones to attend is pretty tough.

Hi Ed,
I really enjoyed the Dixon Brothers. Love that slide/dobro sound. And thanks for posting these festival sites. Our Canadian dollar is about as close to par with the US dollar, and if it stays like this, many of us will be heading to these shows. Now, I wonder which ones to pick?...

I'm a Hanover county boy over here in Memphis, TN
Wish I could hit the Fiddler's this year.

Thanks for the kind words, Preston. There's plenty of good music in Memphis, but, alas, no Hanover tomatoes.
