This is going to be one of the highlights of 2008....maybe of my life!! I get to hang for 4 days with Jim Stinnett, Rufus Reid, Steve Bailey, Michael Manring, Bruce Gertz, Dave Buda, Rob Gourlay....I've also heard that Rufus and I will be playing in some duo and trio situations!!! WOW!!

You don't want to miss this one if you can help it!!!

Here's an overview I "borrowed" from the NHBassfest website.

The New Hampshire Bass Fest is a four-day celebration of the bottom end. Associate with and learn from World Class performers and teachers. Daily activities will include; Lecture/Demonstration, Lab Style Playing Classes, Master Classes, and Performances. Many luthiers, vendors, and manufactures will be on hand. Participants are invited to attend all events.

NHBF is a unique combination of both Festival and School. Students at all levels of ability will have the opportunity to participate in playing classes. These Labs will focus on traditional and contemporary techniques in a variety of styles. Come to New Hampshire to recharge, refocus, and recommit to your musical goals.

The New Hampshire Bass Fest will be held June 25 - 28, 2008
