Oh the concentration of these Pedal Steel Players. They need their brains first then 5 knee levers and

anywhere between 3 and 8 footpedals.

3 fingers and thumb to pick the strings and on left hand

 and all of the right hand for the steel bar.


This was the Saturday Concert Line Up and it seems that everyone went back to thier accommodation and turned up for the

Sunday Social Sausage Sizzle.  (Try saying Sunday Social Sausage Sizzle a few times fast.)
