Art, Winfield was extraordinary!! I am just now recovering from that Kansas sun. It was 95 degrees outside and way over 100 in the music sheds. Heard alot of great music from pickers to bands and enjoyed it all. I especially enjoyed the fingerstyle guitarists like Steve Bennett and Beppe Gambetta. The flatpickers were awesome too. Dan Crary, Andy May, Steve Kaufman; what notes they can pick! I caught Cindy & Steve at one of their performances and that was worth the trip alone. Also took in Steve's song-writing workshop. Art, I picked up a copy of your CD at the Info booth, but to tell the truth I haven't listened yet. You were mentioned several times from stage too. The music was endless, there were 40 fingerstyle competitors it went on until midnight. There was some might fine young talent in both fingerstyle and flatpicking. A classical style won the fingerstyle. It's surprising that nylon string guitars are allowed, but I don't make the rules. Art, did you know there are showers on the premises now? More later, Anne
