Merlefest Friday - More Pictures

Friday at Merlefest was one of those great days that only seem to happen here. Doc Watson on the same stage with Ralph Stanley, Tim O'Brien and the Infamous Stringdusters in an hour long jam, The Carolina Chocolate Drops bringing down two houses, and much more. Again, today, I'll only post pictures with review next week. I want to give special thanks to Dine 'n' Dash fine fast foot at 1299 Collegiate Drive in Wilkesboro for their great sandwiches, hospitality, and Wi-Fi connection for helping me get this up in a timely fashion.
