Alan, you're being considered even as I type -- my husband Curmudgeon (Tom Hall) is the primary organizer (though we do have a hardworking board and a couple non-board -- me -- members who have a say in choosing performers) and I'm just about to print out your post and read it to him. (He's now blind as well as voiceless, so I take care of the PMFF email address, too.)
I will warn you, we're run entirely on donations and our pay scale is pretty much a token. But we offer a festival that is as much fun for the performers (talk to Carole and Andrew, or Andy Kenna, or Liam Robinson) as it is for festival goers. If you are going to be in the area anyway, we can offer a busman's holiday that's at least subsidized a little bit.
Please email us at pmff at comcast.net. (And please visit the website at the blue clicky above.)
A couple years ago we got what I think is our greatest compliment. Someone said the PMFF reminded them of Whitby twenty years ago. We're working hard to keep it a small but very intimate festival.
