The MACC - Second Day - Thursday

Thursday morning felt and looked like clearing. A short final shower briefly discouraged the grwoing audience, but it stopped quickly, the sun came out, the clouds rose, and the heat never became oppressive. The weather was just kept improving, the crowd kept growing, and the music couldn't have been any better. We stayed until midnight, and I still hadn't put on long sleeves. The day generally featured traditional bluegrass bands with just enough variety to keep it interesting and lively. Again, I'll post pictures and let you enjoy. With the very high quality of bands playing, there's no way that highlighting a particular one doesn't do others an injustice. Two surprises are worth noting. The Church sisters, from Ringold, VA, sang a couple of a capella numbers in close harmony to great appreciation of the audience. At the end of the Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver set, Russell Moore and Jamie Dailey came on stage for a brief reunion of two pretty successful former members with their former boss. It's always a delight to see Darrel Adkins put together these kinds of musical surprises. Great stuff! On a personal note, I'd like to say how much I appreciate the people who've come up to me to say "hey" and chat for a few moments. The fact that people read and enjoy these efforts is a reward you can't imagine. Now, let's look at some pictures.
