The Bluegrass Festival

During the two days I spent at Silver Dollar City, I saw lots of shows that were part of the Bluegrass Festival going on there. Most of these shows were only 20-30 minutes long.

The Kruger Brothers are pretty famous in the Bluegrass world. I went to see them twice. Two of them are brothers from Switzerland who now speak English with a definite twang.

Carrie Hassler and Hard Rain are also pretty famous. They had a big hit on the Bluegrass charts. Here's a short clip from it, but to see the whole thing, click here.

Pure Heart, two sisters, would make a big deal out of posing for the camera every time someone whipped one out.

One of the sisters, Teresa, was a champion yodeler.

Frontier Follies was a cute show in the Silver Dollar Saloon.

It was by far Phil's favorite show!

After the theme park closed at 7:00, there was a terrific 90-minute country show with 12 performers in the Amphitheatre. All of these videos can be seen by clicking on the arrow.
