Gary and Steve attended the NorthEast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) music conference in Stamford, CT from Thursday, November 10 through Sunday, November 14. Gary has been going to NERFA for 15 years, but this was Steve's first time. What a blast!! Hundreds of young musicians (and plenty of oldsters too) showcasing their songs on stages, in hallways, in guest rooms, and in the lobby... all day and all night for 4 days. Plenty of jamming and song circles too. Gary got a chance to play on stage with Rolly Brown, national guitar flat-picking champion. Gary and Steve participated in an open-mic session (and got invited to join one of the radio DJ's shows), and jammed into the night with various bluegrass groups. No sleep, but plenty of great music.
