You seldom see her in front of the camera, but NCL Photographer, Hayley Osborne, wanted this moment captured!

    Absolutely fabulous weekend at the Festy! Thanks to all who came out to support Misty Strings on Sunday morning and very special thanks to Andy Thacker for ripping the mandolin apart and to Infamous Stringdusters guitarist Andy Falco for sitting in with us. I hope this event continues for years to come….Van Ripers what?
