Lawson Reunion

The photo above is of a bluegrass group known as Lawson Reunion. These folks are an incredible group, and aside from our mutual love of bluegrass music and Jesus, we are also members of the same American Indian tribe. Many of these folks have served on our tribe's tribal council faithfully for years, and the entire family is incredibly talented musically.

So why am I writing about Lawson Reunion today? I'm writing about them because I heard they are the headliners at a music festival called the hard times acoustic festival that's happening in southwestern Ohio. And the whole day festival is only three bucks. As the promotion sign reads, "Fun for all ages . . . even if your dough flow is slow." If you are living in Southwestern Ohio, hearing Lawson Reunion alone is worth it, but the event is an all day affair. And if you are a picker or a grinner, bring your instrument for an open jam at the end of the night! The location is the Johnson Farm. Not sure where that is? Try entering this address into google maps. 2610 Camden-West Elkton Rd Camden, OH.

I'm really excited to see some shawnee people launching out successfully in this world. I've been proud of the Lawson's for a long time, and it's an honor to be able to share a little bit of what they do with you. Again, if you live in Southwestern Ohio, and you enjoy bluegrass music, I feel like this festival would be a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon!
