The Berkeley Old-Time Music Convention just gets better and better. We truly enjoyed getting to know the wild and wonderful Sheila Kay Adams she made our festival concert a real hoot! Having Benton Flippen in town with Paul Brown and Frank Bode was a real treat Benton laid down the square dance just right. And, well, our alter egos came out for the Cabaret they thought it was the Berkeley Old MIME Convention see photos below. Check out Evies band Evil Diane at the Stringband Contest here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtKQpM7fqHI Finally, we ended the Albany Music in the Park series with a huge free show from the first downbeat there was a writhing mass of children and adults all dancing non-stop all night. We abandoned our set list and just rocked out for the shortest mosh pit weve seen. So fun! 

THAT’S RIGHT FOLKS, IT’S THE BERKELEY OLD MIME MUSIC CONVENTION!

If you guessed “Sugar Hill,” you’re right!

Evie takes a banjo solo

Steph wins the race! (Martha’s up to her roller derby tricks, Evie’s all turned around, and Lisa’s “running man” just didn’t hack it)

A treat for those who never enjoyed the sound of clogging

If you enjoy the high energy roots based music of groups like Nickel Creek 

and Old Crow Medicine Show, give The Stairwell Sisters a listen.
