It's an old-folks folk festival. This week, in separate and unrelated concerts, I'm seeing performances by Joan Baez (tonight), Judy Collins (Saturday), and Richard Thompson (Sunday). I see a reasonable amount of live music, but I never see so many major touring artists in a single week (or a single month, or a single quarter).
Baez is in a 1200 seat theatre, but Collins is in a 300-seater and Thompson is playing two sold out nights in a 135 seat room. I'm very excited. My wife, who is accompanying me, would prefer attending just one of these (any one)--but she accepts my enthusiasm with good humor. (Age 51, she asks if this means it's now time for us to acquire sensible shoes and start buying early bird dinners).
