    I just discovered your festival and website. I grew up listening to John Hartford and Aeroplane is one of my top 25 all time favorite albums. I can't wait till the 2016 weekend.

    We lost our blue nylon hammock which we put up at the main stage. We believe someone must have taken it by accident. It was a "Grand Trunk" royal blue hammock with Grand Trunk hanging straps. If you have it or know where it could be please call me 765-543-5099. Thanks.

    When is the songbook due for release? Will it be tabbed for guitar? Use to see JH at a bluegrass festival that was held at the Racine Co. fairgrounds every Father's Day in the 70's. They stopped doing it, probably because it was free and they lost money.

    Melissa. The festival officially starts about 11:45 Thursday morning with an opening ceremony with Katie Hartford Hogue speaking a few words about her dad. That will be followed by our rag tag staff jug band. Yes, I will be up there too. This ceremony will be at the Hartford stage (main). There will be some music Wednesday night as the sound crew gets the sound systems setup. Plus of course there will most likely be a lot of jams through all nights including Wednesday. If it should be raining, I'm sure they'll be jams at the Boogie stage (big top tent on top of Hippy Hill) and under the pavilion across from the food vendors.
