We just got back from a great weekend at MerleFest 2008. We had to go up a day late (Friday) because Mom and I were still getting over Strep. We had tickets for both Friday and Saturday and camped at Moravian Falls campground with all of our friends. Here is a slide show of our memories from this year.
My newest word is bubbles (said while blowing bubbles with Anna and Drew) and my newest trick is clapping (I clapped during and after every song).
Some of the highlights from the festival were an entire Led Zeppelin set by the Waybacks (supposedly will be released as a live album soon), Bruce Hornsby and Ricky Skaggs, Levon Helm and the Ramble on the Road (from The Band) with special guests Sam Bush and Bruce Hornsby, The Avett Brothers, Hot Buttered Rum and many many more. Be sure to check out YouTube since many of the fans have already posted some of the moments. Here is one from the Waybacks.
