    Default Augusta at Elkins anyone?

    Wondering if there will be any Cafe' folk at Elkins Bluegrass week this year? I've missed the last three sessions caring for my dear wife who has now passed away and am planning to attend with one of my sons in law this year. Hope to see some familiar faces.

    Sorry to hear about your wife, Jim.
    I've always thought of going to Augusta, but never have.

    I loved Augusta. Had some of my best times there. One three-week jaunt working closely with Wayne Henderson and building a guitar, playing tunes and hanging out. Another year with Jethro and another year taking a wood carving class with an old timer. Highly recommended tho I haven't been there in a few decades. Maybe some day will do it again.

    Sorry to hear about your loss, Jim.

    I'll miss this year. Sorry I won't get to see you.
    Maybe next year.

    Many of us are going to Swannanoa instead. Maybe next year we'll all flip back to Elkins. I miss the ice house.

    Augusta is restarting live camps this summer. Only three weeks now, and camps run from July 10-29. Bluegrass is the second week.
