Summertime in the mountains of West Virginia and Western Maryland, like so many places around our land, means it's time for the annual family reunion. In addition to catching up with infrequently seen relatives and friends, family reunions provide clean good fun, food and mountain music.
This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Thomas family reunion as part of the entertainment. This makes five years now that my good friend, Randy Thomas, has invited me to be part of the band he puts together just for the event.
Jim Hollis from Terra Alta, WV and the "J.C." of J.C. and the Boys and I joined Randy on stage at Friend's Pavilion in the Sang Run area of Garrett County, MD. It's a beautiful place right by the Yough River and we couldn't have had more fun. Thanks Randy, hope we get invited back next year.
