Well, not only did I get to meet Rick Fielding, but also Duckboots!

The first set was by a few nice young people, a cool drum, and two guitars. There was some AWESOME classical guitar, including a version of "Canon in D" that is now my absolute favorite! (It wasn't boring... like most of the versions I've heard.) A beautiful, jazzed-up "Autumn Leaves" that was great, too.

Hawk disappeared into the art gallery for a while, and then Larry the Luthier came and told me that Hawk was plotting something with harmonica and mandolin. I wondered what Hawk was going to be doing with a mandolin, as he only knows three chords on that instrument, but thankfully, Rick was the one who played the mandolin. Very well, too. Is there any stringed instrument that Rick can't play? Wow!

Rick played a very good, and entertaining set, but I'll let someone who knows more about folk music than I do report on that.

Nice to meet both Rick and Heather, though, and we'll be seeing you again!
