to the new (young street performers juggling and playing accordion with their companionable dog),
and young ones with their elders playing together in jam sessions on the streets, on corners, under porches, in parking lots and in front of motel rooms--not to mention fiddle contests and masters concerts,
that was the West Virginia Folk Festival at Glenville this weekend.
Did I mention street jams?
waiting to be played--
Old-time and bluegrass music, storytelling, balladsinging, parades, good food, crafters, friends and laughter combined into one good time.
