Bluegrass Banjo at Sheldon's Place - Surrey, BC

Surrey, BC, right in the heart of the lower mainland, with beautiful weather, wonderful scenery and lots of opportunity for pickin'. You'd be hard pressed to find a finer place to live and pick bluegrass. Check back often for my take on things with five strings!

Summerland Bluegrass Festival 2008

The weekend of June 13-15 was spent by the Bullfrogs (the band I play in) in the town of Summerland, BC.


It was the 13th Annual Summerland Bluegrass Festival. The estimated number of people attending the event was 650.


Many bands played on the open stage including the Bullfrogs.


Evenings where spent jamming with friends at our campsite.


Saturday afternoon, several pickers were chosen to play on the Kettle Valley Railway during it's vintage trek through the beautiful countryside. I had the pleasure of meeting Felix, the railway's permanent entertainer and enjoyed picking with Michael (mandolin), Bill (fiddle), Jake (guitar) and Ched (bass).


Thanks to all who made this great event happen and hope you can come on out next year to join in the fun.
