RE: [nwbluegrass] Re: Reminder - Moograss 2005
- From what I know, Julie does her best with other volunteers to schedule
bands to please the band and the folks. Crowds at moograss are usually
largest in the afternoon and smaller in the evening and later. Julie and
Karla as so proud of the bands that come to play and they are treated very
well. The bands just want to play and the folks are very willing to listen
as most bluegrass fans are. This festival is growing every year and has
become a favorite for many a band and fan. They do good work promoting
bluegrass in the community and as a plus it benefits the Tillamook school
music programs. We should do our best to encourage and help bluegrass music
any time we get a chance. Hope to see you all come over for a great weekend
and get out of the heat.
