Subject: RE: Folklife Festival 2011 -- Seattle
I'm somewhat amused to notice that on this first day of the Seattle Folklife (forklift?) festival, we are being blessed with a torrential downpour ... yet again. I firmly believe the planners of the festival brought this deluge on themselves. As they have moved the festival further and further away from it's founding roots of "FOLK MUSIC" ... the weather has gotten worse. I warned them that this would happen!
This year, they are trying to include "new music" into the traditional folk music festival that shouldn't even be allowed at a public hanging. If they keep up this "new thrust", I expect that this time next year, we can expect a snow storm! bob(deckman)nelson
