Once again, Poppy Mountain Bluegrass Festival has come and gone. This year was the 19th annual Poppy Mountain, and my 13th year of shooting. I can’t say for sure but I’d guess that I’ve shot close to 20,000 photos throughout my years at Poppy. Even after all those years I find myself finding new things to shoot every year. And this year was no different. This year I shot over 1,800 photos and about 3 dozen videos. After editing, I’ve posted 1,200 shots in this year’s gallery.
This year’s show featured another great lineup. Some Poppy Mountain regulars and some great new bands including Summertown Road, Weary Jammers, Whiskey Bent Valley Boys, Poacoeus, Billie Renee & Cumberland Gap, Melvin Goins & Windy Mountain, Don Rigsby, The Chapmans, Hillbilly Gypsies, Josh Slone & Coal Town, New Found Road, Larry Cordle & Lonesome Standard Time, Marty Raybon, Dr. Ralph Stanley
Russell Moore & III Tyme Out, Steel Drivers, Mike Snider and Dave Evans.
