Renfro Valley Gathering

We arrived and settled in at Creekside RV Park (Smiths, Smiths, Lezells, Phillips, Laningas).  On Friday we went to the Charlie Daniels concert her in Renfro Valley.  It was an excellent concert, albeit too loud.  But the music was good and the musicians each performed well.

The next night we went to two concerts: a local band to warm us up, and then an excellent concert by Jimmy Fortune.  He was the tenor singer of the Statler Brothers and wrote quite a bit of their music before the band retired.  Jimmy’s music was a mix of country, patriotic and gospel. Although only a trio, the performance was great.

Gail tried to entertain us with some bass fiddle play, only to find out it wasn’t in tune.  Nice try, Gail.
