It was a magnificient fall weekend here in Central Florida. We drove out to Mount Dora in the early afternoon on Saturday to the Renninger’s Flea Market & Antique Mall on Hwy 441, a fifty-six mile drive through the more rural areas thereabouts.
They’ve built a large, well-made stage between the two halves of the operation. Constructed of telephone poles, predominantly, I imagine it will last a good, long time. It looks out over what seems to be about one and a half football fields of grass and picnic tables.
The sound system was terrific and well run by “Big Al” Kalka. I had an enjoyable hour-long set. I appreciate the opportunity. Thanks Al!
On Sunday, we loaded up and drove down to the College Park neighborhood of Orlando to Villa ConRoy on the shore of Little Lake Ivanhoe. Charlie Robertson opened for Friction Farm at the monthly Central Florida Folk house concert. The music was excellent and we enjoyed meeting some new friends.
Next weekend, November 1st and 2nd, is the Barberville Fall Country Jamboree at the Barberville Pioneer Settlement. I will be performing a set both days. Saturday at the Sugar Cane stage at 12:30PM and Sunday at the Family stage at 10:00AM. Come one out and join us!!
