Places in Kansas I am just now discovering after.... (do I dare say my age?) thirty-nine years of living in Kansas.

This event is in harmony with the long-running Walnut Valley Festival&nbsp;in Winfield, just on a slightly smaller scale. In fact, Pickin&rsquo; on the Plains began when music enthusiasts decided to bring the music, fun and fellowship they experienced at the Winfield event to the Western High Plains of Kansas nearly 20 years ago. And what a festival it has become! Tue, 17 Jul 2012 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2012/17/Knee-slappin-Bluegrass-Music-at-Pickin-on-the-Plains-in-Colby/2289/
