Subject: RE: BS: Mudcatters at Winfield, KS?

I've made a note of your sugestions and I will take them with me to Kansas. I was glad to hear about the music in the parking lots and the encampment. The reason I am going is to play in the parking lots and the campground with pick up groups. I can enjoy concerts but for me music is best when it's handmade and home made. In traditional music, playing "well enough to get along" has always seemed preferable to me than being a listener in a concert hall. When I do listen, then I try to participate in another way, by learning something.

I know you are a performer and in that way you are a part of the chain that has made music live for generations but you may still agree that something essential changes when the music is performed rather than played in a social setting.

I am looking forward to Winfield -
