Wilkesboro, NC, April, 2007.
Once again, the Merle’s Kids showcases, MerleFest’s youth talent showcases, were a joy this year. We had a huge turn-out of young musicians, who played to a crowd that grew as passers-by stopped to see what was going on and stayed to watch. Thanks to all the kids who worked so hard getting ready to perform, the families that support them in their desire to play music, and the audience that welcomed them so warmly. And thanks once again to Larry Skipper for his assistance on and off stage.
