SO GOOD!!

No boring or indifferent pics today.

Just still enjoying last night's buzz from the concert. It was soooo enjoyable.

Bruce Mathiske is such a good guitarist, & the night was such fun. There were guest performers. One man played the Scottish Fiddle- his description. He played in his socks! I decided it was so he could enjoy his music right down to his feet! And he was so good, played Bluegrass as well as Scottish, & also some Irish, so it was fun to hear him play with Bruce, as well as solo.

Three *ahem* slightly more mature guitarists played parts with Bruce, & one sang. All good stuff. I think the whole crowd seemed to enjoy it all, & there were many ages represented.

There was also a fantastic banjo player! He was amazing, & I later asked if he had taught himself. He said he had, & he was just such a passionate great player, that it had to be. I felt sure imparted lessons could never have achieved his skill, & delight in playing. I would go again tomorrow should the chance arrive.

I bought a CD, my friends did also, so we are 'sharing'. Oh, the broad range of styles there are to be enjoyed! It is all such great guitar playing.


And tonight, there is a party to attend. It is acutally the Eve of our Granddaughter turning 18. So I had better get off this & go & try to gussy this old girl up a bit.

It hardly seems possible that it is 18 years since I watched her little being come into this world. A beautiful little miracle, & a joy to our family.

Fiddle, guitar and banjo! How could you beat that. It is incredible how grandchildren grow up faster than our own children. I wish they'd stay small a bit longer.
