Lonesome County, 1st place at Renfro Valley

Belated congratulations to Lonesome County, who won the Bluegrass talent Contest at Renfro Valley, KY in mid-May. They traveled from their home in Michigan to compete, and came away with a trophy, and the chance to perform twice on the main stage during the Old Joe Clark Festival.

Members include Chad Jeremy on guitar, Lee Kaufmann on banjo, Kevin Frank on mandolin, Marty Somberg on fiddle and Paul Shapiro on bass.

The band has posted a video on their web site where you can watch them perform at the Renfro Valley festival.
