Rabbit Hash has been a buzzing since Old Timers Day left us with some song in our soul. The Barnival was the first place to see the contagious gaiety of this day. My heart was thrilled to watch Anna Scala and Leslie Green, aka Goofo the Clown, among other participants entertaining all those hungry little people with melodic delights. Despite the rain, there were many brave warriors that rode the storm and enjoyed the music until the end. The first part of the day was lovely with Gunpowder Creek delivering bluegrass the old fashioned way, then the endlessly entertaining, Cincinnati Dancing Pigs. Lagniappe, Cincinnati’s premier Cajun band took the music to the street to ensure no one was left out from their relentless groove. The dance and music group, Keshvar Project stuck it out in the rain for those dedicated onlookers and enthusiasts.
Eventually, the party moved into the barn where the Downtown County Band served up a little hometown bluegrass. Willie Eames brought his Northside Sheiks all the way from Lexington to do an incredible, bluesy rocking set and G Miles and the Hitmen were right on the money with their reliable, squealin’ blues. A new band to the Rabbit Hash music scene, Jake Logan and the Midnight Riders closed down the barn with a cowboy surfin’ sound. I am sure that next year Mother Nature will not be able to resist us on this fun filled day. A special thanks to all of you that make it happen, not just this year but every year!
Last Two Barn Dances
We have finally accepted that summer is coming to a close and the fact that there are only two more barn dances. This Friday, September the 12th brings us Pure Grain from Indiana. They are featured on WNKU this coming Monday the 15th so be sure to check them out. Make a note the last dance will be October 10th with one of our favorites, The Modified! Hope to see you all there.
Walton Old Fashion Day Parade
As if Old Timers’ Day wasn’t enough, we signed on to be part of the Walton Old Fashion Day Parade. Since the Bock fest parade our float has not seen the light of day so we broke it out, dusted it off and transported it to Walton. Now, we are tooting our horn because we brought home a “Most Original Float” trophy and it is proudly displayed in the General Store.
