    Hammock & Bluegrass....

    Hello Hangers,
    Just back from a bluegrass festival doing some picking, singing and hanging.
    Here is my set-up...
    hammock:tarp:bluegrass.jpg
    Was on the edge of a pasture (there are more trees but that is private land) so I had to make a couple of 2x4 supports. Worked real good. Had several people checking me out as I took a wonderful 2 hour nap to the sounds of Bill Monroe coming through the tarp.
    Had fun and what little sleep there is, is so good in a hammock!

    Hammocking and bluegrass! What more could you want? Sounds like heaven. Thanks for the vision.
    Nice way to set up in a pinch.

    How did you join your 2x4's together? Bolted?

    Way cool, Shug. I myself have been riding the bike down to the river banks with my hammock and mandolin...not a bad way to spend a couple of hours. Hammocks and bluegrass are like two peas and a pod, though I haven't yet mastered hanging while picking yet...have you?

    Nothing beats Bluegrass....except maybe hammocks and Bluegrass.

    Not to stray too far off topic, but, I'm almost finished reading Come Hither To Go Yonder: Playing Bluegrass With Bill Monroe by Bob Black. Black was a Blue Grass Boy in the early 70s, played banjo. It's a great memoir of Bill and insight into the family of musicians surrounding him in that era. Any of you bluegrassers looking for a great hammock read should check it out!

    I have sat in a jam with Bob Black as he comes to our MN bluegrass fests from time to time. Have not yet read the book. Got to order that one up......
