Brewgrass Festival A Celebration of Gods

Asheville North Carolina-stop-September 07-stop-Home Brew-stop-Blue Grass-stop- joined ear to pallet-stop-why are these people just sitting-stop-one man with a beer-stop-One Price Each Beer Free Then-stop-when did I start hanging around fools-stop-FREE BEER-stop-YOU PAID THE GATE-stop-for Christs sake!
The photo was staged nothing so ridiculous as this would be permitted in my world. However I noticed while digitizing this moment the symbolism; only one person had a beer,yet all of them were being force feed blue grass.I do like bluegrass, and I also like beer, which brings me to my point. Where can a man go these day to be force fed beer? Yes strip clubs but...Look free beer a bargain is a bargain is good business.

What's blue grass? Is that something you smoke?

Smoking blue grass in a purple haze listening to white noise.

That's my only comment at this time.

You just don't expect to see blue-collar white people sitting on lawn chairs drinking beer in North Carolina.

South Carolina, maybe...

It's like seeing a nun in a porno store.

What would be REALLY weird is if they were all talking about NASCAR!

Awesome! Reminds me of Mole Lake.

Six words: Ma ma, am I a redneck?

clea: Bluegrass is indeed something you smoke and can be sold illegally around many countries.

simon:A fine comment, you may rest my friend.

zen: The people in the foreground are all educated and are for the most part visitors. Asheville is a College town and has a somewhat young thinking feel despite the statue of the former confederate governor.

toby: What is sad is that yes there were red necks and I fear I may have stood out in the crowd. I was sober, but so was most of the crowd, at least the police were not overworked.
Blue Grass and the evolution of BG is strong. I embrace this evolution, we have some very talented artists who are playing a roll in using the style, listening and sometimes improving.
See Avett Brothers, Leo Kottke and now my batteries are dieing . Ciao JW

Locally we have a BG fest (Old Settlers Park) that brings in bands from all over, but it's better in Mole Lake.
