KBA Winterfest

February 20, 2017

This past weekend, we headed to Wichita for the Kansas Bluegrass Association's annual winter festival. As always, we were greeted by the most enthusiastic audiences we could hope to meet. To celebrate the upcoming release of our new CD, "Home", we offered a preview download of one of the tracks to festival goers. We'll be sharing more about that project later this month.

On stage Saturday afternoon
Between shows, we led individual instrument workshops as well as a band workshop. We also had a chance to visit and pick with fellow musicians and friends like Bluegrass legend Allen Mills and mandolinist Scott Napier from Lost and Found.

Of course, no trip to Wichita would be complete without a lunch stop at Toot's Drive-In in Howard, KS.

You can just feel the anticipation
