A few words about Jenny Brook...

Folks -

If you missed out on attending the 6th annual Jenny Brook Family BG Festival in Weston, VT last weekend...well, you missed a good one! From Leroy Troy's Thursday night set to Nick Anderson & the Gospel Friends closing everything down on Sunday afternoon, it was just terrific, non-stop music. Seeing Springfield Exit (featuring fabulous lead vocalist, Linda Lay) with David McLaughlin and Tom Adams playing along was a treat for this long-time JMB fanatic, and the Gibson Brothers were a blast, as always. Of course, the regional bands were quite impressive, as well, especially BearTracks and four bands with CT connections: TrueGrass, the Old Time Bluegrass Singers, Nick Anderson & the Gospel Friends, and, of course, the hosts--the Seth Sawyer Band. Fortunately, for all of us, while the Weston weather was not perfect, we didn't get the monsoon-type rains that were the norm in CT last weekend. Congratulations to Candi & Seth Sawyer for another wonderful festival, and we will all look forward to the next Jenny Brook FBF in June 2007.

In a separate post, I'll include some pics from last weekend's festival. If you attended and had a great time, why not dash off a note to Candi & Seth? Email is a good way to go: I'm sure they'd love to hear from you.
