South Carolina State Bluegrass Festival - November 2013 - Myrtle Beach, SC (Day 3)

The 44rd Annual South Carolina State Bluegrass Festival

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Day 3 - November 30, 2013

One of the highlights of the show was during Dailey & Vincent's version of "More Than a Name on a Wall."  As usual, they asked for veterans to stand and be honored during the song. One 88-year-old veteran, in a wheelchair on the front row, managed to get to his feet.  He was soon assisted and supported by two men who walked over to help him. This caught Jamie's eye on the stage, and he was visibly moved as he sang the song and pointed to the gentleman.  After the song, +Darrin Vincent came off the stage and walked over and shook the man's hand while Jamie talked to him from the stage. And that, my friends, is one of the things that makes Bluegrass music so special. It's not about a "star" on stage singing to nameless fans.  It's about real people, both family and friends - on stage and off, getting together to share music and life together.
