Wabash River Bluegrass Festival & camp, held in conjunction with Pork Day USA!
ALBION, Ill.—Here are some shots from a cool little event held this past weekend at the First Christian Church in Albion! This is the Wabash River Bluegrass Festival, a music camp gaining in popularity every year. At the camp, performers of the various instruments used in Bluegrass music (guitar, fiddle, banjo, bass, etc) are taught by experts who travel from all over to attend; as well, good ol Bluegrass clogging is taught.
Above, Buddy Robertson from Callahan, Fla., was a banjo and guitar instructor for the event. Buddy’s only 16, but one of the best to be found.
Above, Samantha Nichols, 13, of LaVergne, Tenn., Rachel Hawf, 11, of Allendale, Savanna Batan, 15, Spencer, Ind., and Dylan Hawf, 17, of Mt. Carmel produce music as a quartet.
Above, Rache Hawf participates in a duet with Michelle Gunderson, of Evanston, on the acoustic guitar. Michelle is the daughter of Bill and Edythe Strater of Albion and teaches music in Chicago. Gail Johnson, of Nashville, Tenn., was in charge of the event. Participants in the camp appeared in several scheduled performances during Albion’s Pork Day USA fest this past Saturday, July 10. Our staff tells us that Pork Day was absolutely packed out when they were there between 11 a.m.-12 noon, so kudos to all who made Wabash River Bluegrass camp and Pork Day an enormous success!
