If you haven't been to the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, KS (held the 3rd weekend in September) you are seriously missing out on some musical goodness! This year was the 45th anniversary of this magical festival and your favorite boys and girls in the SHD String Band were able to hit some licks on Stage 5 during a steamy Saturday afternoon at the Lake. We also did our fair share of campground picking and grinning and reunited with friends from near and far right there in the middle of Kansas. Sadie pal Tim Sullivan of the great Red Headed Strangers even joined us for our Stage 5 set and sat in with us on a gig in town while we were there. This festival is like a big family reunion. So many good people and good times!
