Thank you to everyone who helped make the Kluane Bluegrass Festival 2015 an astounding success!

Thank you in particular, the village of Haines Junction; you made us feel especially welcome. This gave us a chance to witness your thriving First Nations and artistic communities.

The village had invested in and improved its in-house technology, so not so many truckloads of equipment had to be transported. The technicians performed their work seamlessly and seemingly effortlessly. Having two venues magnified opportunities and enjoyment.

Festival organizers, all volunteers, along with jillions of other volunteers transported people and products, cooking, fundraising, making everyone comfortable, cheerful at all times, constantly giving support.

The audiences were great to be part of and those people deserve thanks, too. Musicians from near and far gave generously of their time and talent, all amazing.

Thank you, everybody! We had a very good time.
