It's a very exciting Tuesday Tunes this week! The Ossipee Valley Bluegrass Festival is this weekend!!! I'm not sure that we'll actually make it this year, but I'm still damn giddy that it's happening and daydreaming about being there. Our absence has nothing to do with the festival itself but is a clear example of my lack of planning and procrastination. I kept thinking the end of July was so far away...um yeah, it was in May, not so much now.
Anyway, the Ossipee Valley Bluegrass Festival is a wonderful event that showcases traditional Bluegrass as well as general acoustic sets, including Honky Tonk, Gypsy Jazz and even Irish. The festival is also incredibly family friendly (from what I've been told from friends who take their young kids every year.) Your ticket includes the price of your own campsite so you can make yourself at home, venture out to see and hear the incredible music, visit vendors, make new friends, watch competitions in banjo picking, fiddling and even take workshops and compete in the songwriting championship.
So, with that as my inspiration this week I'm sharing two videos because I couldn't choose just one with so many great bands to pick from!
First up, Steep Canyon Rangers W/ Steve Martin. (he won't be there, but they will!)
Della Mae - I'll Get It Myself
