Miami County Fair & Fort Rowdy

Mad River Railroad played two fun shows recently. The first was at the Miami County Fair (pictured top)—a big thanks to Smilin’ Bill Benning for standing in for Dave Finster on base. The second show was at Fort Rowdy Gathering (pictured below)—thank you to everyone who came out to hear us and brave the rain!

Troy Strawberry Festival Voting is Over. Thanks to all who voted!

Friends and Bluegrass community,

Thanks for voting for us for the Strawberry Festival talent competition.  Since the voting was unlimited, we may have lost out to those with big social network connections.  Our audition video was one of the most viewed.

We have been asked to play at the Strawberry Festival anyway.  We’ll be on the main stage (Prouty Plaza) at 2 PM, Saturday, June, 7th.  Come on out and have strawberries and good music!

Thanks for your support!
