Every October is the time for the Albino Skunk Music Festival. We live about an hour and a half away from Greer, where the festival is located. The first weekend in October there is a three day long music festival, or should I say F-E-S-T-I-VAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLL, a common call heard throughout the day.
Driving up to Greer isn't hard, and as you get close to the neighborhood there are signs-- looks like we aren't the only ones headed up there.
The next turn.....
And finally, to get into the parking area, or the front yard---
The first band, Ben Miller Band, from Joplin, MO, had car trouble, so the next group was getting ready to go on a little early.
The show started a little before 4:00 PM, and lasted well past 11:00 PM.
The first band we saw was 'The Congress'-
From Denver we travel over the ocean to Dublin, Ireland for the next band. Would you believe Irish Bluegrass? This band was super!!! Welcome 'I Draw Slow' This was their first time in the States, hope they come back again!!
After the Irish came the kids from Brooklyn. What a diverse collection of bands. 'Food Will Win The War' is an Indie band the festival organizer found on Youtube. Quoting from their Facebook page, they play "accordion-infused, violin-tinged glockenspiel rock"
Elizabeth Cook came on next and had the crowd hoppin'!
So glad we went, plan on going again -- there IS a Spring Festivaaaaaal. Anyone living close by should put it on your schedule!!!
