There isn't a really a big event scheduled - but an event motivated a friend to plan a trip to Mt View this weekend.

Stringband Music & Arts Festival
OCTOBER 14 & 15, 2022

We 're making plans to be there - more for the purpose of meeting and playing some OT tunes with folks. If nothing else - our friends will be there.

...but I wanted to ask - Is anyone else from FHO going to be there this weekend. I'd love to meet up with forum friends and share tunes.

Well, Tony, I would normally hop to over the mtn to meet you, but we've got all manner of NW AR craft fairs going on this weekend.

I hope you enjoy Mtn View. There's a good catfish place there on the White river, can't remember the name. Probably not as good as what you'd have in MS.

I sat beside a guy tonight, that will be there. His name is Walt. Harmonica is his mane, mandolin is his second ax. Fiddle tunes on Harmonica. You'll know it, when you hear him. I warned him about Mtn. View. Second visit, you'll bring furniture.smiley

Sounds like Jo Jo's Catfish Wharf at Jack's White River Fishing Resort.  We've eaten at JoJo's before - good food. The deck overlooking the river is nice and relaxing.  We have reservations at Jack's for Friday and Saturday nights.

We are on a mission that should bring us back to Mt View. Things go like I hope - it may become semi-regular - for a while anyway. I'll let you know. We can catch up one way or the other -eventually.  I'll PM when we plan something else.

If you can - tell him to send me a message and contact information.  

Mt View is a great place. I have been a lot of times, but enough to always look for an excuse to go again.

My Goodness. The weekend was everything I had hoped for. I met several really good - accomplished - OT musicians - played sessions both Friday and Saturday nights. Saturday night was a providential accident (is there a such thing?) I want to say that I have a lot of new friends now. I am so grateful for the acceptance and inclusion I received. I've been several places and played with other folks - but this place was amazing. I can't say enough.

The "mission" was very successful - we will be going back!  ...as often as we can!

Glad you had a great time! I have several good friends there who are fantastic OT musicians! I am amazed at the plethora of kids coming up in the OT tradition!

I am planning to be in MtnView on the 3rd weekend of April for the spring festival. Except for the Covid haitus in 2019-2020, I've been every year since 1977. The Wildflower B&B will become OT Central.

You can bet I will be there that weekend my friend. Nothing would please me more than to play tunes with "Fiddler".

 

I first heard of the Folk Festival in Mt View back in the 60's. I should have gone. Wanted to, but never found anyone else who was interested.  My loss.

So happy for you Tony, I know what a spiritual recharge you had. There's nothing quite like make friends via making music - good for the heart and soul.
