Photos and videos will soon be on the blog for this year's 2012 Roadrunnerstringjam but for now go to youtube on the web and check out the videos we took. Just search for roadrunnerstringjam and it will get you to our page and a list of our new videos from 2012. There are a bunch. So look hard because they are all there.
2012 was all about weather and new faces. Great weather. Great great weather!!!! The most amazing sunny pleasent days we have ever experienced here at the Stringjam. Biggest Full Moon of the Year Sat night. Video of the moon rising is on our youtube site. And several new players who are now our friends, and fellow Roadrunnerstringjam players. Great folks from everywhere. Albuquerque to Colorado. Taos to Texas. Portland to Oklahoma. Friends 2012 Roadrunner Stringjam and our Woody Guthrie Centennial tribute year was beyond our expectations. Lots of folks emailing us with unexpected delays in their arrival times. All kinds of stuff happened. Even an " I ran out of gas" story happened. It started a bit slow on Wed with only a dozen at our steak dinner but blossomed into our best year so far. For our friends who could not get here to join us we thought of you and missed you dearly. We pray we will see you next year. By the way, 2013 dates are set. May 1-5 . Seems we say that each year is the best, but the weather could not have been better with lots of music being played outside all day long putting an exclamation on this years gathering. Not to mention many folks played to 2:30 or 3 am or later in the mornings made for some wild sounds in the early am. And Emily Wilson topped it off by driving all the way down Sat night arriving at 2:45 am to jam until 4;30 I was told and beat most of us up on Sunday am to play in the Gospel groups. We counted 45 folks came here this year even though we counted 20 or more from last year missing due to illness, work issues, or other bummers that left some of our best friends staying at home while we celebrated. The Woody Guthrie tribute went over very well with many doing his tunes day and night. Some nights for hours.I think there is even a Who video on the site.. The Who led by a dobro player.. Well it's acoustic and it was a blast. So go check out the videos and come back and check our blog here on the news page of our site soon with all the photos and a recap of 2012 RoadrunnerStringjam.
Just so you know you all made it a really special year. Woody would have been proud.
