Struggle Mountain's 2015 Halloween Party

Halloween fell on a Saturday night so our party was actually on OCT. 31st. Not always the case. We also lucked out in getting a beautiful night for a party. Not too cold and clears sky’s. The rain didn’t hit till Sunday night.

This year started a little different with Danny Lynch and friends playing acoustic music on the front porch as people came. We had some outside tables so people could sit and enjoy the night and his bluegrass music before the party really got going. Danny ‘s getting pretty good these days on the fiddle.

The Music
Jody and drummer Marc set up in the living room to do a set starting around 8:30. Jody has been playing our Halloween Parties for
over 40 years. Has a video of the Best Part of Loving coming out soon.

Just his song not the video

Jody can be a big sound even with just two people playing.

After Jody played we went outside and joined a circle around Audra to watch her fire dance.

Audra was able to do her wonderful fire dancing again this year.
If the rains had come early it would not have happened.

After the fire dancing we had Audra and Aiden’s band play. They got a pretty late start but sounded great once they got going.

John Henry played more of an acoustic set later in the night after Audra and Aiden finished. John hurt his foot pretty bad before the party.
