dogwood arts festival

This past weekend I got to do something I have always wanted to do. I got to play on the outdoor stage in Market Square here in downtown Knoxville.

The incomparable Kenny Gooch and I backed up our good friend Taylor Brown as he played Friday and Saturday to the lunch crowd for the Dogwood Arts Festival. The sun was shining, the crowd was excited, and the food was smelling fantastic. It was perfect.

My favorite moment was on Saturday when a group of little girls decided to dance...on stage...like fairy princesses to one of Taylor's more intense and disturbing songs. I told him afterwards that his music is best described as a darker and more indie version of The Wiggles.

He didn't find that funny.

Well, here are just a few pictures of the event...

You guys look like total rockstars.

Well, as much of a rockstar as you can be while holding an accordion.

the only real question is "how fast can you play rocky top on that banjo of yours?"
