Midnight Sun Intertribal Powwow 2011


I had the pleasure of attending the Midnight Sun Intertribal Powwow again this year with my friend Grace. Participants come from all over Alaska and the lower 48. We're not Native American, actually Grace is from England, but all are encouraged to participate.
The regalia is always awesome and learning of their different heritages is great. The people are always friendly.
And it's a family affair.
Thanks again to Nancy and Jim for putting us up for the weekend. I hope my thank yous aren't wearing out, but it made for an awesome weekend.

Sourdough Biscuits

My friend Grace and I have become fans of a local bluegrass band named Sourdough Biscuits. I first saw them last year when I was at the Kenai river Festival. I was the first one to buy their CD.
They play some of their own music and some by others. They're all very talented and put on an awesome show.
just about whenever they play in the Anchorage area, you'll probably see us there tapping our feet. This time was at the Silvertip Grill in Girdwood. We went to listen to them play and check out the Forest Festival.

Tonight Grace bought their CD and had the band autograph it. She'll be their biggest fan in the United Kingdom, when she gets home to England .
