Old Time Music Festival Beats the Weather

It was 100 degrees in the shade on Saturday, and rain kept falling sporadically on Sunday; but the Old Time Music Festival in Metamora went on.  Over 30 regional groups and performers shared their talents from two stage areas, workshops were well attended, and everyone had a great time! 

One highlight of Sunday was an impromptu performance of "I saw the light" by Brian Keith Wallen (2011 Cincy Blues Challenge winner and Starr-Gennett Blues Artist), Dean Phelps (2010 Indiana Thumb Pick Guitar Champion and 3rd in the nation for 2011), and Ted Yoder (2010 National Champion Hammered Dulcimer player).   This was captured on video and can be seen on YouTube.
