Wide Open Bluegrass Festival, Raleigh North Carolina!

Almost better than the souvenirs from our the last evening with
Was remembering to bring my camera this time!
It was a beautiful day in Raleigh today and, the IBMA couldn't have
chosen a better city to host its Wide Open Bluegrass Festival!
If you know me, then you know Bluegrass is not typically my thing...
But if you know me, then you know that Steve Martin is my thing!
I love him. I have loved his sense of humor most of my life...
So when he offers to show up to spend an evening telling me his
amusing stories and play the banjo with the very lovely Edie Brickell,
whom I also love dearly... Well, then, I make myself available to him too!
If you haven't listened to every tune on their CD, I recommend you do!
The Steep Canyon Rangers are amazing too! If you ever wanted to
know what became of Paul Revere's horse, click here. Go ahead, I'll wait!
And, to see really inspired fiddle-playing, watch this! Go ahead, I'll wait...
I'm not yet sure when we'll be together again...
I'll have to check my calendar... And, probably their calendar too!
Nevertheless, one thing is certain...
As long as they're available, Steve, Edie and I have a date
with those other Rangers this Army Ranger mom loves!


  1. My hubby says (and it seems to be true) that even if the music is not normally your thing, live music always sounds great, and if there is a chap that you love playing.... What can go wrong hey! Hope that you got your Steve fix. Lovely to see you blogging more again Janet!

    1. Your hubby is right, Amy!

      I did get my Steve-fix and with him on my iPod now too, I should be okay until the next time. ;)

      I'm thrilled to have you reading along and I promise, I will blog as much as my life allows! xo
