Did everyone have a good time? We brought the kids for a few hours on Sunday, which entailed standing at the edge of the crowd most of the time. It was exhausting, but we got to hear some good stuff.

Little Son is still talking about the Dancing Feet workshop. It was nice to see that the Scottish and French Canadian blood is strong in both offspring; they were fascinated by the stepdancing. It really was a contagious performance!

I enjoyed the joint concert with Eddie From Ohio and Matapat; they melded together and did some fine stuff near the end. In fact, that was probably the most enjoyable aspect of the festival: seeing the interaction between the "older" and "younger" performers.

I think my favorite part of all was the primo performance Louis Killen gave in the Whaling Museum Theater. Louis was in fine form and the audience was very attentive. I don't think I've ever seen so many bowed heads (in classic listening pose) outside of a church. :-) It was also fun to watch Ray Fisher's enthusiastic enjoyment of the performance.

Actually, I've been corrected. I only witnessed the final two songs in Louis' set, which were all good. He finished up with a good rendering of Albert and the Dartboard. According to people who were there for the entire set, he blanked out and forgot a lot of words. So maybe all the bowed heads I saw were people praying that he'd remember the words all the way through... ;-)

Where's everyone else? Come on, I know you're not still sleeping it off!

I was there just for Saturday and loved every minute of it. The Fiddler's Dream especially. That whole hour blew me away. Four women playing a mean fiddle in their own way. Lisa Gutkin from Whirligig (that I saw later), April Verch, who has her own group that I missed (darn!), Jennifer Roland, great step dancer too, and Joyce Andersen, who sings along with her fiddling. They should make a CD together, would be super to have all those different styles on one CD.

Janis Ian was really good and still a great entertainer, too. She is an EXCELLENT guitar player. Effortless but powerful.

Caught the tail end of a Blues session that was pretty impressive.

Ran into a few Mudcatters, too, so all in all it was just about perfect.
