Saddleback hosted their 2nd Annual Bluegrass Festival on August 12th and 13th and what an amazing time was had by all. When it comes to hospitality Saddleback Mountain located in the beautiful Rangeley, Maine really knows how to make people feel welcome weather it is the middle of summer of the depths of winter. Thank You Saddleback and crew for putting on one of the cleanest and most respectable festivals that I have been to. If you failed to make this event then you better mark your calender now for next year because it is going to be back and it will be a festival that you will not want to miss. It is the most kid friendly music event you will ever find and you couldn’t as for a more amazing back drop to listen and dance to some amazing music from local acts to national acts.
Everywhere I went people were having a good time and the large crew dancing in the Ditch seemed to be having an especially good time during Ricky Skaggs! Thanks for bringing such an incredible line up of music to this great state and for sharing your amazing mountain views along with your welcoming spirit. May the spirit of Saddleback, Maine touch all of those that enjoyed the Bluegrass festival and hopefully I will be seeing many of you again when the grass gives way to snow and the leaves give way to the beautiful rhime ice.
Mark Robie put on a World Class event and his willingness to take positive critisizm and ideas will just allow this event to grow into the biggest and best Bluegrass festival in the Northeast in the not so distant future. To all of you Saddleback employees that I saw from Jim, Jared, Chris,Kevin, Ian and many others thanks for your dedication to continually put the people first and to allow such a wonderful mountain to be shared. A huge thanks goes to out to the Berry family who with out them the growth of this mountain would not of been possible.
Again many thanks and I look forward to an even larger crowd of like minded folks at next years Bluegrass festival!
