Stratford Day

The Bristol Boys played Stratford Day today. Fortunately, we were in the air-conditioned senior center, rather than outside. Unfortunately, most people chose to stay outside.
Thanks to Mike Chavel, entertainment chairman, and all of the volunteers.
The highlight to me was seeing Mrs. Price, a sweet woman from West Virginia who wants us to learn "Country Roads." We did get a couple of requests - one for Ring of Fire, which we don't do, so we did Folsom Prison Blues instead. The other request was for Spanish Eyes. I love the tune, and used to play it on the accordion. What I like about playing with Dave and Tex is that they're willing to give just about anything a try. I think that we pulled it off pretty well -- we may have to add it to the set.
