David Morris will be on the ground this weekend at the Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival, reporting back on the 62nd iteration of this popular Pennsylvania event.
The festival has been going since 1979 when it was founded by Joe Cornett and his wife Lil. Now run by their daughter and her husband, Rich and Cyndie Cornett Winkelmann, Gettysburg has been a destination for bluegrass lovers Spring and Fall for more than 30 years.
David will give us his impressions of the fest, and of what we hope will be JD Crowe’s triumphant return to the stage after a serious fall put him out of commission back in February. Gettysburg will also mark the first performance of Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper since the lineup was reshuffled earlier this week and, if all goes well, David will try to speak to him about his plans going forward.
There’s quite a roster of talent and everything get’s started on Thursday (5/12). Let’s hope the weather is good!
