What a truly great, great festival!
I used to go to festivals all the time, in my youth, and they were the highlight of my year. Haven't been to one since my now grown kids were very small. This one, small as it may have been in comparison to ones with 7 stages running at once, was every bit as good.
Actually, better, more intimate and friendly, with much mingling of musicians and audience. And the line-up was soooooo superb! Not a weak performer in the bunch...only further inspiration to keep this music alive.
It was immeasurably gratifying to me to be invited on stage to sit in a few times. I sure hope to play this festival again!
(And thanks so much for the kind words from a couple of people above. What a pleasant surprise to see them here. I just joined Mudcat, having only found out about its existence from Dorothy at the Festival. Now I have to resist the temptation to hang out here instead of working!)
