This past weekend Amy and I attended the 2014 Taste of Country Music Festival at Hunter Mountain New York. In my defense, and to stay on subject of my woodworking blog, I must say I did take a woodcarving project with me. Only a little woodcarving occurred. I would not have made it far into the venue with box of sharp tools. I chose instead to bring a pocket sized sketchbook and pencil and lounged back and practiced sketching.
The weekend was full of great music. Friday night was a raucous time with Brantley Gilbert, Dierks Bentley and finale of pouring rain. Saturday was a ton of fun with little sun and The Cadillac Three. Craig Morgan kept everyone’s mind off the cool evening temperatures. Randy Houser, abandoning his band and broke down bus in Pittsburgh earlier in the day, treated the crowd by crooning unplugged. Sunday was a sunny scorcher with great tunes provided by Tyler Farr and Thomas Rhett. Thompson Square rounded out the festival delightfully.
We will be returning next year ready to muddy up our tires and boots while camping riverside.
