Isn't this picture great! I've swiped it from the Trapper Creek Bluegrass Festival page on Facebook. The festival is on the 22 May at Trapper Creek in Alaska. I'm sending our very own Ukulele Blog correspondent, Ukulele Russ along to check the gig out. In fact, I think he might even be playing a set for all the local bluegrass trappers. Brilliant!
Here's a song I stumbled across the other week to soundtrack this post. I think you can see where I'm going with this can't you?

I love this photo. Don't know who made it, but I'll give credit to Studio Urvois 1.
Here's me trying to show how wonderfully straight that banjo neck is. It's wonderfully straight, isn't it! ;-)

Right, that's your lot. I do have another couple of posts I could possibly do for you, but you're going to have to wait and see...
