Charlie Waller reads a song someone had written that touched him. He read it to us between sets at a show at the Haymarket town green. The trailer in the background is the stage. Note the audience on the lawn. It was a wonderful setting for an outdoor Bluegrass show for the amazingly low cost of $2.00 each! We were in Bluegrass Heaven.
