August 17-18, 2019
Saturday witnessed some of the worst weather ever experienced during a GCV&M Fiddler’s Fair, soaking most folks with continuous rain all day. But the musicians’ and audiences’ spirits were not dampened judging by the ongoing activities.
The FOG jam tent kept going through thunder and lighting, and the entertainment on the Barn stage was, as usual, superb and well received by the audience. Attendees even made the long walk over to the Church in heavy rains to see some really good musicians offering up true old time entertainment. Just like folks would have done decades ago.
Sunday dawned with more rain, which largely cleared up by the time activities got going. The GCV&M staff and musicians were ready and the audiences filled the venues. FOG delivered another great set, with the audience yelling for an encore.
What it is all about was summed up by a gentleman that approached one of our members following the performance…
“I am from Amherst [NY] and I want to tell you, the music I just heard made this trip worthwhile! You all brought JOY to all the folks here, and we could tell the group was having so much fun in playing for us”
What more can one say – isn’t that the reason for what we do?
