If your Florida drive is occurring in the first week of February, then come down to Homestead to the Main Street Cafe, when our club is hosting Grant Livingston's CD release party. It will be a great night, singers and musicians welcome. First Wednesday in February.

Caz...As Sanford is just outside of Orlando -- try this site -- the Orlando FOFF chapter: http://members.aol.com/OTownFOFF/Home.html

If you can make Grant's CD release, you won't be dissappointed. He's one of my favorite Florida folkies who will also be at the South Florida Folk Fest this weekend -- Grant and I will be performing together at Kool Beanz in Cocoa Village on February 10th, if your still in the vicinity (www.koolbeanz.com).

...It should be a very good time for all down at Esterlin Park in Ft. Lauderdale, Paul. Sorry I will miss it! I was hoping Brad Keeler would come down from his new home in Seattle and jam some with me on his way south but evidently he is enthralled with the great northwest!

Hope to see you in White Springs now that Jeb and Kathryn have decreed that the FFF will proceed as usual in May! Oh, and of course at the Will McLean Festival, also. Have you got song entries this year?

...Hi caz2ufolk. There are a number of irish harp players around here such as Helen, Alison, guest, Julia. I am merely an autoharp player. Why are you going to Sanford? It's mostly sandhills and antiques stores!!!...DeLand's little clubs often have good music and Orlando has lots!

harpgirl- Wow! I bet it sounds great when your all having a jam. I like the sound of the harpsi-chord. I try to get that sound on my guitar when I play a song called 'Absent Friends' by Keith Hancock.

Sanford is just the airport my girlfriends and I are flying too. Once we've got through customs! picked up are car, I don't think we'll be stopping long. We are going to be traveling down the I95 to west palm beach stay a few nights and then head out west to fort myers.

My girlfriends have never been to Florida before, I am so excited for them. I thought it would be nice to combine the holiday with some excursions to a few folk clubs.

An airport in Sanford??? Must be talking about farmer Brown's tater junction and catfish emporium. I think it's got one straight road long enough to land of if you're not too fussy. If you do it just right you might land in the strawberry patch.

Thanks, caz2ufolk. I sing with an Irish band and sometimes unaccompanied, but rarely in a strange place. I'll check out the Fuel coffeehouse and sit back for a good listen.

Yes, Harpy, I thought Sanford was more known for the Auto-train. 'Course Sanford is still a very small town. In fact I've heard that when the front of the train engine is leaving the city limits, the back end hasn't even arrived yet!! Don't get me wrong, though, I'd love to live in such a small town much more than I like living in the 'big city' that I do.

Susan-Marie -- There is music every Thursday eveing at European Street Cafe in the San Marco section of Jacksonville. Christin Kane this week -- met her in Lauderdale this past weekend and she's wonderful. When you get to town, pick up a copy of Folio Weekly, a free local entertainment weekly...look in the center spread for who's performing where. St. AUgustine is close by with lot's of music as well -- we're going down to hear Patty Larkin this Fridat night...If anything else pops up, I'll drop you a note.
