Saturday morning, Amber Keene took her first fiddle lesson. That evening, she performed "Mary Had a Little Lamb" on stage in front of hundreds of people accompanied by a three-time national banjo champion.
This was also the first year that Keene, 9, of Bloomfield has attended the Kentucky Bluegrass Music Festival.
"The bands were pretty cool," she said. "I've never been here before and I want to come back next year."
