festival of merle.

Saturday and Sunday featured a bluegrass festival in the hilly parts of North Carolina.  This meant frolicking around in fields with fiddles and and banjos as our soundtrack.  And, being friends with one of the performing musicians really made it all - it allowed us to have free tickets, vip passes to the artists' tents, and free meals for the whole weekend!  It also meant being able to stand 10 feet away from Allison Krauss & the Union Station while everyone else was watching in a chair far away (naha). It was so nice of Jubal's Kin to let us tag along with them - everyone go look at their music!
