This was the 15th Annual Bluegrass on the Beach Musical Festival. It lasted three days, but we only bought tickets for Saturday. We walked around checking out the vendor booths, bought drinks and food, walked down to the lake which was right there next to the grassy area, and then settled down on the grass in our chairs to enjoy the music.
I got photos of some of the groups.
Wayne Taylor and Appaloosa:
The Larry Stephenson Band
- 2015 SPBGMA "Album of the Year"
Danny Paisley & the Southern Grass
- Danny Paisley 2016 IBMA "Male Vocalist" of the Year"
We stayed a while, then drove back to camp to check on Katie and relax. Then we headed back in time for the last group - the U.S. Navy Bluegrass Band "Country Current." Military bands are ALWAYS the best! And these guys didn't disappoint.
U.S. Navy Bluegrass Band "Country Current"
From the information on the brochure, "Country Current performs regularly for the president, vice-president, the secretary of the Navy, the chief of naval operations, the chairman and vice-chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the master chief petty officer of the Navy and numerous other dignitaries. They also perform for communities both locally and nationally, veterans, elementary schools and in support of our active-duty Sailors."
They were fabulous! What a treat!
While the Navy band was performing, a flock of blackbirds flew up into the tree right next to the stage and perched for a while, enjoying the ambiance.
As were all the people sitting on the grass:
I'll show you some photos of the London Bridge next time.
From me and Katie, have a great Wednesday! 😎🎻🎼
