Another incredible and diverse roster, with some old favorites, and new surprises.
Please enjoy my montage formats (they open up nice and big) of these great photos by our official photographer Chuck Thompson.
Other featured performers this year (Saturday night, Sunday afternoon, or both) included:
Stephen Bennett, playing his Kathy Wingert
Muriel Anderson, with her 21-string Doolin
Andy Wahlberg, on his vintage Dyer. Saturday playing his amazing “Sleighride” and Sunday doing “Cows with Guns”.
Mike Doolin on his new Mike Doolin!
Old favorites included:
Stacy Hobbs, on his vintage Stahl
Brad Hoyt, with his Sedgwick arpa viola caipira
The always-entertaining Drew Baldwin
Pete Bradshaw, playing his brand new Wingert short-scale (tuned up a half step)
Dave Powell played solo Sat night (on their new Tonedevil), and brother Tone joined him on Sunday, borrowing the Workman’s Dyer #125.
Frank Doucette, with his Wingert HG #1
Me on my Michael Dunn harp uke. And yes, this is a first!…I sang (sort of…)
Nate Blaustein’s concert debut. Congrats!
We were thrilled to have Claude Laflamme from Canada join our harp guitar ranks! He is playing his recent Michael Pellerin harp guitar and is a great player and composer. I think he’ll be back.
And a couple of harp guitar duos, which is always a treat:
Muriel and Andy performed “Nola”.
And Brad and Stephen closed the final show with “Across the Universe”.
And that’s a wrap!
