I just wanted to thank everyone who came out for the jam at Ruby’s on Saturday.Â It was so great to see all ya’ll who made it out and to share some memories of Jerry Swafford and pick and eat together again.Â It sounds like Jerry’s Memorial was an awesome event.Â Mike Conroy mentioned that they did “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” and that there were hundreds of folks out to pay their respects.Â Our heart is with Maryette and we hope to see her with her fiddle real soon.
It was great to see Chris Tambe, Arlene Wolf and Gary Moore all the way over from Salmon and Tim Whitney and his lovely wife Judy and daughter Kelsie from out Chinook way.Â I was bummed that I went to bed to early to get to see our bluegrass kid, Elora.Â Reports are that she is growing into a beautiful young woman (just like her Mama).
I was so distracted with bouncing around from jam to jam and all that forgot to take my camera out to snap any pictures.Â Anyone that got some shots (Ben) or video, I hope you’ll share some with us here on the website.
Lost and Found:
