With a beautiful blue sky, cool temperatures and the amazing Mt. Rainier as a backdrop, The Rogues performed for only the 2nd time in 7 years at the Washington Midsummer Renaissance Festival in Bonney Lake, WA.
The Rogues performed all three weekends of the festival as well as the evening concert Saturday night after close. The band had a blast at the festival and the concert and hope to be able to return to Washington regularly in the future. The staff is wonderful here and feel more like friends than employers. The friendliness of the staff and performers and the patrons is what we remembered most from our first visit 7 years ago. That and the beautiful area.
The Rogues' line-up for this show is Randy Wothke on drums and keyboard, Jesse Bills on pipes, Kay Campbell (Kristen Jensen) on fiddle, and guest drummer Rich Teachout on bodhran. who also helped out at the Northwest Pacific Scottish Games the week before.
