Fan-Fiddle-Tastic! Shoe Fest 2013 | Review & Photos

Santa came early this year.  I must have been a good girl because Sept 6-9 2013, everything I asked for was left under the trees at Shoe Fest.  I had a taste of Nederland CO here at Camp Shaw in Manteno IL.   I saw some of the best dub stop music all weekend long.  I had a song dedicated to me.  If I was still a little girl and had asked for a pony, I got something better.  I got fiddle.
