Joe Mullins once again presented a wonderful show at the Roberts Centre, Wilmington, Ohio on November 12-13. On Friday, Bill Emerson and Sweet Dixie, the Primitive Quartet, IIIrd Tyme Out, the Grascals and Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers appeared. Saturday brought James King, Ralph Stanley, Don Rigsby, Charlie Sizemore, Larry Sparks, and a Don Rigsby coordinated Stanley brothers tribute to the stage.

A special treat was seeing Dale Vanderpool appear with Don Rigsby. Dale is still battling cancer, but felt well enough to enjoy the festival and sit in for a few songs. It was wonderful to see Dale and his wife, and visit for a few minutes.

Southern Ohio Indoor Music Festival

We enjoyed attending this fine show in Wilmington, Ohio, November 11-13.

The Thursday night veterans tribute was an addition to what has been a two day event in the past. The Centerville High School Alternative Strings ensemble joined Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers, Rhonda Vincent & the Rage and Nothin’ Fancy to pay tribute to both veterans and active service people.

Benefit Show

I have copied this directly from an e-mail sent to the IBMA e-mail list. I am not sure if we will be able to attend, since it is a 4 hour drive away, and the Sunday before Christmas. However, we will make the trip if we do not have family plans for that day. I hope you will consider helping out if you can. Gerald and Dale have surely provided hours of entertainment, and many generous gifts of their time and talent over the years.

Thanks from the bluegrass community, and the sponsors of the show.

Both of these talented entertainers have made a lifetime of contributions to the Bluegrass community throughout Ohio and across the country. They are both battling cancer. A day of music from some of their fellow entertainers will be a great benefit to Gerald, Dale and their families.
