The Vandalia Gathering

video

It was a busy time this weekend at the state capitol. I played a bit (not on the video) and had a good time wandering around the  "Vandalia Gathering" This is a musical event featuring "old time music".

You can dance here too:

Sometimes it's fun to just watch people. 


The temperature was in the sweltering 90's.

Thanks Paul,

West Virginia has a LOT of this kind of music. There are many guitar, fiddle, and mandolin players in this valley. The "dulcimer" is also very popular.

Hi John and thanks for the upload. I had forgotten how much I like this "real" country music. Essentially unchanged over the past 100 years. 73 Dick

Hello Dick,

I took the video with my very small camera (60 seconds). It gives a brief glimpse of what happens at the event. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
