Over the weekend Sarah and I trekked down to Glen Lyn, Virginia for the first step of my master’s project: The Henry Reed Memorial Fiddlers Convention. It’s a apparently quite a small, young convention and definitely a great place to start. We attended master classes with Alan Jabbour, made friends with the Reed family (and others), listened to seemingly unlimited music, discovered Brunswick Stew, thoroughly enjoyed the New River, and of course gathered quite a lot of material.
I intend to make a short video about the convention later this week but for now we’ll follow a tangential style and give you photos of not-music.
edit: for the curious, a more complete gallery is now available
