Man, we had many! I’m excited for folks to post here! Here are a few pics of some guests.

Russ Carson and I playing some Foggy Mountain Special for banjo students. James Tucker has the video on his facebook page if you’re friends with him.

Wish I could’ve been there! Looks like it was a great time; would have loved to meet Russ and Dennis.

Cool side note… I realized in the first pic, y’all are both playing replicas of J.D.'s banjos… Banger/Twanger (Ben) and Granada/Gold Star (Russ). Actually, that might be a Huber that Ben’s playing; can’t quite tell. Hope there’s video of the band competition and show.

I’ve some videos of Saturday nite that I’ll try to get posted. This one is Clinch Mountain Backstep. Unfortunately I didnt catch the part at the beginning where they (the band) kicked Jake out. Literally made him remove his guitar and get off stage! (Don’t worry, he’ll be back :wink:)

Thank you @Simone it’s wonderful that folks like me who can’t get over to the States can at least sample some of the atmosphere of the Cabin Camp. Love the yoyo @Jake and the juggling Katy Lou. The Band was OK too… gif

You’re welcome! Glad you are enjoying watching them. Katy Lou was gathering Hickory nuts and juggling them over by where my group was practicing. :thinking: hmmm, maybe if I learn how to juggle my playing will improve?:rofl::rofl::rofl:
