Kentucky Mountain Laurel Festival

Matthew went with me this year to the Kentucky Mountain Laurel Festival. We had a blast and he has informed me that he is "going back every year from now on". In addition to seeing us honored for our (The Sensations) induction into the Kentucky Mountain Laurel Festival Hall of Fame (we have played the festival 26 consecutive years), he heard me perform with famed lead vocalist Richard Street and The Temptations, Dixieland South, The DR Jazz Quintet, and The Sensations. He loved the big Saturday morning parade as well. Between gigs we went hiking on the Wilderness Trail in the Cumberland Gap and on Pine Mountain. He particularily enjoyed rock climbing and making it to the top of the "chained rock" atop Pine Mountain. He also enjoyed the stay in the Holiday Inn Express and Best Western in Middlesboro.

It was a lot of work mixed in with a lot of play. Of the 26 Mountain Laurel Festivals I have played, this one was my favorite.
