Festival was a let-down

For many years I have been coming up from Florida to the joyful Galax Leaf & String Festival.

This year the music was very much reduced, making it less attractive for visitors.

Also, it was strange to have unknown groups on the stage while top ones like Whitetop Mountain Band and Slate Mountain Ramblers had to play in the street. It must have been insulting to them.

I sure hope it will be better next year. I love Galax and old-time music!
