Fantastic article Derek. I was there and for me one of the great highlights of over 40 years musical watching was the moment Jerry Douglas hit Summertime with Tony Rice already in full flow.....glorious stuff!

Cool. I'll let you know. Usually we meet at the raffle tent behind the seats of the Watson Stage. I have a musician friend from Wales named Robert gabb who moved here about ten years ago to marry a Yank. He played in some bands while still in Wales that your wife may have seen at some point.

Great article, Derek. I didn't know the whole story about Merle's death, I knew it was a tractor but didn't know about the woodworking accident. Felt like I was on the road with y'all. Doc is a national treasure!

Merlefest begins this Thursday. My trip starts tomorrow when I catch the 3:29 am Amtrak Cardinal Train Number 50 and head to Huntington, West Virginia where I will hook up with my Uncle Wormy, load his festival rig up, probably hit the Wheelersburg Farmer's flea market along the Ohio River early on Thursday morning, then wait for our fellow travelers later in the morning, and head south.

Nick, I've got your seat numbers. If you see this before you arrive, a meet is scheduled at the raffle tent behind the Watson Stage seats at Friday at 6pm and Saturday at 5pm. I'll be wearing a blue with yellow trim Brazil soccer/Nike hat. If you are parking in the Blue lots along the old airstrip, (where you take the bus shuttles to the fest- we're in Lot C zone) we'll be camping at the far end of the airstrip in the last field on the left before the airstrip road dead ends at the YMCA (on the main road side and not on the river side) The last check in station on the Left before the YMCA, turn in left and go back to the treeline. Older white Toyota truck, look or yell out for Wormy or Derek. Otherwise, I'll try and catch you at your seats.


Or, in reverse of you are not parking in the Blue lots, as you come out of the festival to the main road, turn left and go a mile or two to the YMCA. Turn right into the YMCA and go back to where the road either turns left into the YMCA or turns right onto the old airstrip road, which are the Blue lots. You will immediately see a check in station on right, park nearby and then walk back on the road past the check in station and look for the older Toyota pickup truck in the first field along the treeline.


Anyone else, buzz me.

DH

Enjoy DH. This looks like a fine lineup as usual. I shoulda done it. If you see a fiddler w/ a FL Gator hat, that's my friend Bruce, along w/ wife Claire, the dulcimer player. I did get tix to Sparrow Quartet here on 5-22, which is some small consolation to not going.

Thanks for the heads up on the audio; I'll listen in a bit over the weekend.

Thanks for the article Derek and you can bet that I'll be listening to radiofreemerlefest off and on all this weekend. And for any of y'all that have never been to Merlefest, this is a festival you need to go to. If it's any type of American acoustic root music, it's going to be played there. And what makes Merlefest great, beyond Doc Watson (who's reason enough to be going), is that so many of the artists, end up "sittin in" with each other, and you get performances you will never see anywhere else.

Got in yesterday and set up camp. Bigger crowd than usual on Thursday due to the Old Crow Medecine Show. They do have their followers. The Wilders kicked their normal good time music ass last night and then Marty Stuart played a full set. Marty then came out and jammed on three songs with the OCMS, including a revved up version of "Fire On The Mountain."

Many friends camping nearby. Within minuted we were greeted with some fine blackberry moonshine from out friends on one side, Joe, a full blood Montana Blackfoot, and some strawberry moonshine from the other side. Smooth, well made shine, both out of North Carolina. Weather is great, collaborations all over the place, more to come.

Tune in above and sip on the live sounds.

DH

Tomorrow at 10:15pm -Saturday. His daughter's band, Ollabelle, plays before hand. If I get any word on Levon's possible 'special guests' I'll pass it along.

Big crowds to see Doc Watson today. At 85 years old and recent surgery, he is still picking sweet lead guitar. I don't know how late Doc will be up on Saturday, but hopefully he and Levon will get together. Roy Book Binder , Jorma, Happy Traum and others putting on a blues guitar clinic as we speak. Awesome.
