Wintergrass 2013

We were in Bellevue, WA for Wintergrass, 2013 – an *enormous*, indoor bluegrass festival, where there were, literally, 24/7 jam groups. It was stellar!

We went to a cello workshop with Rushad Eggleston. This guy is an extremely talented, creative, out of the box, cello virtuoso.

I wanted to add a cool video of Rushad playing a complex piece while hopping around on one foot, but neither WordPress nor Facebook will allow it. Here’s a YouTube video of Rushad playing at lightning speed, being more serious and staying stationary, which is unusual.

Double neck mando. Top neck is strung like a ukulele. Bottom neck is strung like a viola. Cool, huh? Had a nice sound!

It’s too hard to summarize the awesomeness of Wintergrass in words. You have to experience it for yourself!
