Charleston FestivALL: Celebrating the Arts West Virginia Style

I'm looking forward to the second edition of Charleston FestivALL set for June 23-25 in Charleston, West Virginia. Seeing a post about the Catfish of Fife Street over at Dale Morton's Costume Blog prompted me to check out the 2006 FestiVALL schedule. (Dale, can't wait to see the final catch.) You ask "What is FestivALL?"

Be sure to check out the great line up featuring: The Neville Brothers; Blues Brews & BBQ; Wine & All That Jazz, featuring Chris Botti; Chris Botti; Moutain Stage, featuring: Bruce Hornsby, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Tommy Emmanuel and The Believers; FOOTMAD (Friends of Old Time Music and Dance); Robert Shafer; Bob Thompson Unit; Blues de Jour; The Carpenter Ants; The Soul Doctors; Robbie Mackey; WV Dance Company; and so much more!

If you didn't attend any of the events last year don't forget to attend this year. For those of you who haven't been to Charleston or West Virginia this is a great time to visit and appreciate what we have to offer.

For more info on FestivALL don't forget to check out the GAZZ FestiVALL Blog.

UPDATE: More fishy tales from today's Charleston Daily Mail about the clay and papier-mache catfish making an appearance at FestivALL courtesy of Dale Morton Studios.
