Joe Val Bluegrass Festival - Saturday
There's a rhythm, a vibe, that takes over a festival as it begins to heat up and get going. Saturday in Framingham's Sheraton Hotel had that feeling as people lined up to grab seats in the ballroom, jammers, having jammed 'til early in the morning got their instruments out for more, the Kids Academy moved into full steam ahead, and workshops filled with eager learners. The Joe Val festival was in full swing and taking on a momentum of its own.
