Allegheny Echoes Fundraising Concert

What an evening! The Allegheny Echoes organizers and presenters schedule a few fundraising concerts every year to fund scholarships for the annual Allegheny Echoes Workshops, held in Marlinton, WV. (This year's workshops will be held June 22-28).

Jake Krack on fiddle, unknown bass player. Jake has been winning contests for half his young life, I think, and he's extraordinary.

The Echoes group includes some of the finest musicians and writers the state has to offer, and they pour their energy into the workshop week, helping others learn to play, sing and write. (See my blogs from June last year.)But there is truly no way to capture the energy and excitement of Echoes on paper or film. You just have to be there.)
Kim Johnson on banjo

Pete Kosky, who writes his own politically incorrect ballads and accompanies himself on guitar, had us laughing until the tears rolled down our cheeks.
