Jamboree Again

The High Desert Fiddler Jamboree in Burns in June was a wonderful event. Dona Townsend, Lynn Staub and I played autoharp together along with Dennis, Dona's husband, who played guitar, and Maria Thompson, who played fiddle with us sometimes. Dona sent some great photos on Picassa but it took me this long to figure out how to download them. So here they are. I was emcee for an afternoon and got carried away with the hats. 

Dona is a watercolor artist. She had some of her paintings displayed at the Jamboree. One was of a cowboy and I kept looking at him thinking, that cowboy has a story. I bought the painting from her, and he will 
Dennis, Dona, Lynn & Marjorie
be in in the next book I write about about Harney County.  He'll also be on the cover. The title of the painting is "My Heroes Have Always Been" (Dona has always loved cowboys) and that will be the title of the book! Thanks Dona and Dennis for the photos! Vivan Las Amigas Autoharpistas!
