“O Cantor, Where Art Thou?” Notes from the Road: Goochland


    There must be something in the water out in Goochland! These folks packed the White Hawk Music Cafe, cheered through Dr. Ralph Stanley’s first set, then demanded another round of music. They even convinced the legendary bluegrass star to pull his grandson Nathan on stage for a rousing duet. The attendees just couldn’t get enough.

    But before the guys even took the stage, Wayne was busy taking his message to the people. While the band prepped, Wayne did an impromptu Q&A session with the capacity crowd. He answered questions, discussed issues, and connected with voters in a way Eric Cantor never has.

    Following the extended concert and another quick word from Wayne, Dr. Stanley signed autographs, took pictures, and even signed one guest’s banjo.

    This penultimate show in Goochland was a wonderful example of the effects of a people-powered movement. In the words of Wayne, “This is a bluegrass-roots campaign.”

    We’re back on the bus now, only a few miles seperating us from our final show in Glen Allen. We can’t wait!
