Bluegrass bell winner is from Canada
From left, Hi-Country Bluegrass Festival organizers Bob Roloff, Ben Sandoval, Ben Satran, and Jerry Schultz congratulate Gita Silver, the winner of an original Arcosanti bell during the festival on Saturday. Organizers of the Highway 69 Chamber-sponsored event estimate 600-700 people attended the successful event in the Colly Soleri amphitheatre. Silver, a retired music teacher from Vancouver, B.C., especially enjoyed listening to music teacher Annie Beach with her Jam Pak Group. The Jam Pak group brought instruments for people to try out during the day. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit local schools.
