Sandy Long Gone Fests (12) RE: Long Gone Fests 09 Dec 98


Hi, Dan!
Festivals long gone, eh? Well, Bob Zentz put on some dandies down at Old Dominion in Norfolk, VA. Folk-Legacy itself did five small festivals in Hartford, CT, (with all the hard work being done by the Domlers of the Sounding Board) at which the singing of the audiences was absolutely wonderful! Art Thieme referred to one of those when he talked in the F-L thread about my Laskin guitar.

But how about some festival horror stories, too? I was told of one very recent one at which John Robert and Tony Barrand were expected to present a traditional set while the crew was dragging chairs out of the room to make room for dancing to the Ska band that was to be the next act.

Then there was the one up in New Hampshire (Waterville?) on a blistering summer day. They had brilliantly set up the stage under corrugated metal, creating a perfect solar oven. My wife, Caroline, and Joan Sprung nearly collapsed.

I'd enjoy reading of others -- good and bad.

Sandy
