Recorded an interview with Linda Wright and Kenneth Berrier this afternoon for their Local Grass Radio (localgrass.com). Broadcast on WEHC Radio with podcasts on their website, this show is a great idea well executed. Thanks to the internet, local is not defined geographically now and like-minded fans can enjoy fine bluegrass from around the world. We chatted about the Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival coming up in Winfield, KS, from September 14 through the 18th. My handsome husband has been for 28 years. I'm looking forward to being Kenneth and Linda's roving reporter at this great festival so keep listening to Local Grass!

Great visiting with my dear friend, Sherry Boyd (above), today. Sherry recorded an interview for broadcast later tonight. Listen between 8 and 9, EDT, to WBRF Radio, in Galax, Virginia: http://www.blueridgecountryradio98.com/ The Galax Fiddlers Convention marks its 76 year next week and nothing makes me more homesick, so I took it upon myself to invite friends and relatives back home to the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, KS, in September. (www.wvfest.com) The next best thing to going home would be having all the homefolks here! I wish we had room for everyone to stay with us!
Sherry and I have been co-workers and roommates and she wrote the foreword for Dixie Lee Jackson's Guide to Cookin' and Kissin'. Folks around the globe are sure glad she's back on the air. Sherry was honored at the Society for the Preservation of Blue Grass Music in America awards this past year with a lifetime achievement award. She emcees bluegrass music festivals around the nation and is beloved wherever she goes!
I'm so proud to include her among my talented and beautiful friends!
