2011 Photo Retrospective II

Here's the second edition of my annual holiday special photo offerings. These photos were all taken during the relatively brief period from the end of April through the middle of May at three events - Merlefest in Wilkesboro, NC, The Doyle Lawson Bluegrass Festival at the Denton FarmPark in Denton, NC, and the Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival held at Granite Hill Campground near Gettysburg.  All three of these events are large festivals attracting varied kinds of music and attendees. The pictures are presented in chronological order with no effort to keep band members together or to make commentary. Hope you enjoy them and have a wonderful holiday season.
