    Just got back from the Eno Festival in Durham NC.

    Saw 4 Kay basses. A blonde Kay, A 50's Kay, and a 60's Kay, and one of unknown origin with the top painted red, white ,green, and yellow.

    One Kay was being bowed with a German Bow, held like a French.

    Another guy had this SOUND I would love to have, the funkiest I've ever heard on a plucked Kay in a non-jazz setting. Just down and dirty and on the money.

    Nice to see & hear 4 basses in one place in 3 hours.

    Too bad I had the kids or I'd have more to report.

    Music was fine, mostly old timey, bluegrass, and jamband stuff.

    Nice way to spend a Sunday with the kids.
