I live about an hour north of the site. I was hoping to be able to just hang around on Saturday as I did a few years back. I was happy to be able to just share what I could of my music on just the one day. I helped out those who were working at the event where and when I could, and kicked in what cash I was able to afford. But I see that this year they've outlawed the practice.
As my income is largely what I am able to derive from my performances on the street at Seattle's Pike Place Market. I have no $ to be able afford the whole weekend package. Nor could I take the extra time off from playing downtown. Hey, I may be gettin' by but I ain't gettin' ahead.
Outlawed from a folk music gathering, hmmm, it does have an interesting ring to it, don't ya think? Perhaps I could use that in my promo.
