Movie night recap

Movie night was a huge success!  the whole crowd sang, jeered, cheered, recited lines and generally had a fantastic time.  After a little El Kabong and Bugs Bunny we settled in for the feature presentation .. O Brother, Where Art Thou.  Special thanks to Kirby Guinty and Mark Sheltgren for producing and setting up movie night. Also thanks to our talented neighbor Thomas Trapp for putting together a stellar band to close out the evening.

“Let’s go out to the lobby and get ourselves a treat”!

Tuesday in the Pecan Grove

It’s Tuesday morning in the Pecan Grove at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas and as of yesterday evening Stage 5 is ready to go for what looks to be another fantastic 29th year of acoustic music along the Walnut River.  For the third year now Tuesday evening means Golf Cart Drive-In Movie Night starting at dusk with some of your favorite cartoons, then settle in with us in our “living room” and enjoy a screening of our favorite movie.  “Cheer” the good guys, “boo” the bad guys, sing along with the songs and say the lines along with your favorite characters … it’s always a super fun evening! Don’t forget the popcorn.  Then bright and early (at 9 AM) Wednesday morning is sign up and then later in the evening we will host the Rat Camp Band Scramble Winners and some of the National Finger-style Guitar Championship contestants in a fantastic warm-up concert.  There will also be some open stage time following the Band Scramble winners.
