Blackwater Bluegrass Festival 2009
The 2009 fall festival
was a bit cooler and wetter than in years past but the music,
as always, was great!
The fall festival saw some new faces on the Stage. The Langfords,
Bent Creek and Grasstowne.
Grasstowne brought a ton on IBMA and other prestigious bluegrass
awards to the stage on Saturday.
Grasstowne's latest project, "The Other side of Towne" was
on sale at Blackwater even before it hit stores. Click on the
band's website for ordering details.
Also at this year's fall festival were Marty
Rabon, Clear Blue
Sky, and The Campbell Trio.
weather threatened and it did rain some, but with the facilities
at Blackwater Bluegrass, everybody stayed dry. Festival owner
Geroge Deavours planned for inclement weather by building
a huge shed area that is almost like a amphitheater facing
the stage. That means that even when it rains, the music
comes through clear as a bell and the crowd stays dry.
