In 2011 we played in the Ethnic Village and also on the Lincoln Stage.

The weather was nice compared to the HOT few months prior to this.

Below are a few of the photos from this year.

to the tune of "Cripple Creek".


Tom is playing the harmonica to the tune of

"Cherokee Shuffle".  Notice Sherry in the

The weather was in the 80's and we had a good crowd.
