|Absolutely phenomenal. The Big Bison captured this moment with his camera. |
Wish we could have bottled the whole evening!
Alison Krauss and Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas performed at Bluegrass Fan Fest on Saturday, October 1st.
I just happened to be there. And here's how THAT happened.
We got a call from a dear friend at church on Friday afternoon. When I say "at church", I mean she was quite literally calling from the church building, where she had been working answering the phone. It seems she had received a call from a lady who was calling from the Kansas City area. The lady had tickets to attend the International Bluegrass Music Association Fan Fest in that was being held in Nashville this weekend, but was going to be prevented from attending due to her husband's health problems. And the tickets were non-refundable. So she had called her pastor and asked him for the name of a church in Nashville that she could call, so that she could bless someone else with these tickets. And her pastor thought of our church.
Now, it so happens that the girl answering the phone for our church happens to be our dear daughter's Sunday school teacher. And, you know how kids are always telling stuff on your family behind your back to their teachers? Well, our daughter had mentioned to her Sunday school teacher that every Saturday morning when her Daddy makes her pancakes, he listens to bluegrass. And when he tried doing yoga on the Wii for a while, he would listen to bluegrass at the same time. (Talk about your culture clash!!!)
