Birthdays and House Concert...

This week was Adam's birthday.Dang! he is getting old.His Mom is here for a visit and our daughter and grandbaby came out for cake and icecream.Amber made her Dad a cake with no flour because he is allergic to flour.

Friday night Adam's band played a house concert and the Pontica Coffee House is Springdale Ar.This is a great place that started it's life as a Pontica car dealership.It was built by the grandfather of the lady that now runs the coffee house.

The coffee shop is in the part that housed the new cars and they hold the concerts in the back where they used to work on the cars.
By-the-way they make GREAT coffee.


Above is Adam at his best.He and his banjo are like peas and carrots.He has been playing the banjo sense he was 16 and he started playing the mandolin at 3.He can not read music but plays by ear and can play anything with strings.

This is the whole band New Highway: from the left...Karen and Tim Hill,Ken Jones,Adam Hardcastle and Dallas Prouty.
Stateline Bluegrass Band was also there but none of my pictures of them were any good.
