What do you do with a covered bridge that is no longer viable for traffic – close it and put it in a park. Once a year they hold a bluegrass festival on the bridge.
The shuttle was rustic (we walked).
Although more stylish rides were available.
The covered bridge was decked out with lighting, including the only chandelier I have ever seen on a bridge.
The first band we saw was the Rock Island Plow Company.
The dobro player was very good.
With a couple of exceptions, they played traditional bluegrass.
There was a second ‘stage’ where individuals played.
The last band we watched was the Tyler Williams Band.
‘Emily’ the bass player had a cool, thin electric bass.
Tyler, who has been blind from birth, was a great guitarist.
He had a unique finger picking style to his play.
Emily also provided excellent vocals to the band.
It was a unique setting for some traditional music, and worth the couple of hours we stayed.
