L&B at Joe Val

Joe Val was a great one, indeed. He loved Lorraine’s music and encouraged her dulcimer playing. The annual festival in his name is the most fun  you can have in Framingham, or in a Sheraton hotel anywhere, for that matter!

 We’ll hold a workshop called Appalachian Antecedents – The Roots of Bluegrass. The best Bluegrass starts out as old-time music. We’ll follow some old time songs and tunes on their way from the farm-house kitchen to the Grand Ol’ Opry.
