Big Ears Festival

Had an outstanding time. Our first time to Big Ears, and not the last.

Almost impossible to schedule a day without missing something great.

Happy to see kh1958, charlesp, randyhersom, BFrank, jeffcrom and others.

Made a bunch of new friends and spent time with some old friends.

I see Randy mentioned The Thing (Paal Nilssnen-Love, Mats Gustafsson and Ingebrigt Håker Flaten) who had a great show Friday night.

Ashley Capps does a great job.

Couple of music fans below.

Impressive set of shows there, Buzz!

How were Hidalgo & Ribot?  Interesting pairing - I enjoy Ribot's Prosthetic Cubans albums.  Curious if they played Lobos material or more traditional stuff.

I would have loved to have seen every show you saw on Friday as well (Saturday too for that matter), though I'm unfamiliar with Nest Egg.  

 

Yeah, it was nuts! Actually Hidalgo & Ribot weren't as interesting as I hoped. Mostly more traditional stuff and not bad, but compared to the shows I saw later, not as interesting. I missed Ceramic Dog a day or two after, though.

I think you would have liked a LOT of the shows AGGGGGGGG. I didn't get to see much of Nest Egg, unfortunately, but if they come this way I'll definitely see them again. Rockers, for SURE!

Saw Mary Halvorson with Thumbscrew (Michael Formanek & Tomas Fujiwara) last night. Great show - looking forward to seeing all 3 of them again next year with Code Girl!
