In recent years Kurt and his band Harbourtown have been fixtures at the Charlotte (MI) Bluegrass Festival. They’ll be appearing on Thursday, this year (this week). I’m looking forward to hearing them again.

I’ve been attending the Charlotte festival for nearly 40 years. It’s part of my routine; it’s one of the highlights of my summer.

Somewhat to my surprise my camera’s recently given me an identity at both festivals I attend. I’m no longer just one of the fans; folks call me by name, ask where they can find my photographs, and talk with me about past festivals. It’s an interesting change, and I’m not sure why it happened. I’ve been taking pix for years; this part-of-the-show thing’s only happened in the past two or three summers. All in all it just seems, well, odd.

Puzzled. That’s the word.
