Looking forward to Clifftop

Posted by sawsometunes on Tuesday, July 14, 2009

I'm heading off the Clifftop, WV at the end of next week.  Looking forward to it.  I always seem to get a great mix of woodshedding on tunes I've been needing to work on, jamming with folks I know, meeting new folks, hearing new tunes, and hearing the many fine musicians who love old time music and come from all over to West Virginia every year for the festival.

This year, it's sort of an odd time.  I've been out of work for most of this year.  Things have been hectic.  Looking for work when there aren't many jobs is frustrating.  And available jobs seem to be under the control of personnel agents who only look out for themselves.  I rarely had the opportunity to talk directly with the people with the work!  (? Why do people use middle men for something they would be better off doing themselves???)

Guess I need to put all that aside & go to the festival & play tunes & worry about job hunting when I get home....

It's nice that my wife & I have music in common.  I love to play music.  And, I have found that the people I have met playing music have been some of the finest one could hope to meet.

I hope you have a wonderful time. Try to forget your cares while there and enjoy the magic of playing music.

Marshall - Look us up. We'll be camping with Albert Smith and the Atlanta contingent. I'd love to share some tunes with you. I'm sorry to hear about your job troubles, especially as a fellow engineer.
