We've been watching and enjoying the Wilson Family Band since we first saw them at the much lamented Spirit of Suwannee Bluegrass Festival at the Music Park in Live Oak, Florida in March of 2007. Irene said, "You've gotta see this band." I did; she was right...and we've been friends of there's ever since. In recent months, Clint Wilson has participated in the Bluegrass Legacy singer/songwriter workshop taught by Ronnie Bowman and Dan Tyminski. One of his songs is on the new Blue Moon Rising CD and he's becoming increasingly well known in song writing circles. Meanwhile, the band's exposure is becoming wider, and they are promoting a new festival at Newell Lodge near their home in Folkston, GA in March.
