A Closer Look: Vern & Ray with Herb Pedersen

The last picture I posted was Vern and Ray with Herb Pedersen on the front page of the Winfield Daily Courier (taken from Herb's own website), so it makes sense that I start with them to post these new photographs. These shots are from the same concert, April 29, 1967, in the Stewart Field House. We're pretty sure the photographer is Bill Stevens. Left to right are Vern Williams, Ray Park, and Herb Pederson.

Interestingly, Mr. Pedersen remembers that the guitar was his 1935 Herringbone (Martin D-28), the banjo was a 1930 RB4 Gibson Mastertone, and Vern's mandolin was a Gibson F4.

Ray Park also did a few songs by himself at the guitar styles workshop in the afternoon.
