Old Time String Band Contest

Le Flaneur just came indoors from the Berkeley Old Time Music Convention's String Band contest. Here are a few images and notes.

 Ten Miles Out of Tune
who of course played perfectly
That's the great fiddler Jody Stecher,
Eric Thompson on guitar 
both long-time Jerry Garcia collaborators,
the fine banjo player's name I missed

 Your average hundred year old Appalachian fiddle player
He played these ancient figures that were so gleeful
(his name also slipped by me)

Paul Brown was the extra-ordinary fiddle player in this band
Smiles abound at this cheery scene in the former Provo Park
alongside the healthy and appealing foodstuff at 
the Berkeley Farmer's Market on Center street
