New to this Blog…saying howdy, y’all!

Hi there from Washington State!

I manage a hillbilly jamgrass band called Deadwood Revival.  We’re “out of the box”, but bluegrass fans seem to love us anyway.  Nice.

I have a question ….  how are the smaller Bluegrass Festivals faring around the country??  We’ve had FIVE cancel this year in Washington and Oregon- mostly due to funding issues.  It’s a very sad and disturbing trend in these economic times for both the musicians and the bluegrass lovers.   DwR was booked for two of these now-cancelled festivals and I couldn’t help but wonder if this is happening all over the country.
