Pickin' in the Panhandle 2010

Posted by  | September 14, 2010  at 5:55 PM  
The crisp feel of fall was present as a morning fog
stretched across the mountains, the scent of hickory smoke filled the air, and strains from a lone banjo played in the background--it was Saturday morning of the 2010 Pickin' in the Panhandle BBQ & Bluegrass Festival.

From Shenandoah to Skaggs, this year's Pickin' in the Panhandle did not disappoint. National acts like Joe Diffie and Ricky Skaggs may have attracted the crowds, but it was a young group from Bridgeport, WV, who stole their hearts: Midnight Ride not only won this year's Pickin' Porch bluegrass competition, they were a hands-down festival favorite and the talk of every campsite by Sunday morning.

Even Saturday night's rainstorm was welcome in this drought-wrought region, although there were some soggy (but still happy) campers the next day. Sunday
brought an equally enjoyable lineup including Missy RainesThe Grascals--whose next stop is with Hank Williams, Jr--and, of course, Ricky Skaggs.

Whether you came for the music or the meat, you stayed for the experience. With shows on two stages, straw bale seating, and folks of all ages giving hula hoops  a swirl, Pickin' in the Panhandle takes you a million miles away, while making you feel
like you're right at home.
