3rd Annual DC Bluegrass Union Festival

Decisions made in a moment can affect a lifetime. (A Gentle Spirit, 19 February)

Today's posting on Mr. Dickie's Blog pays tribute to: 
  • Bluegrass music
  • Groups that promote the music
  • Bands that performed on 25 February 2012 at the 3rd Annual DC Bluegrass Union Festival.
Yesterday I attended the 3rd Annual DC Bluegrass Union Festival held at the College Park, Maryland - Holiday Inn from noon until 11:30 p.m. That was eleven and a half hours of Bluegrass with breaks of only about ten minutes between sets.  Eight bands performed with two bands playing two sets.  The festival was a great success with a full house for the evening performances.  During the program they announced that plans are already underway to hold the festival at the same location in February 2013.

The winner of the Friday night band contest was a Washington, DC band - By and By.  They opened the show on Saturday.

The 2012 Washington Monument Award was presented to co-winners: Tom Gray and Eddie Adcock.

The president of the DCBU, Randy Barrett and Dede Wyland performed in the band Mama Tried.  Eddie and Martha Adcock performed with Tom Gray.  I couldn't find good webpages to use here.
