The stage is now quiet, the cars are all gone, and our Music fest for 2007 is history. Here are just a couple of photo’s from the night:

It’s hard to put into words what you’ll experience @ our music fest. More than one person came up to us last night and said “I wasn’t sure quite what to expect, but this totally exceeded our expectations.”
Talking to Fran last week on the phone he told me in certain parts of the United States, the Dalziels could easily command $500 to $1000 a night for their performance. They are just that good. The whole evening was full of special moments. Dennis a banjo player/ historian whom I’d never met before, Matt a cowboy keyboardist, D M. who got on stage w/ Scott and Michelle and WAILED on that harmonica! If you happened to be there last night and stop by the blog, I would love to get your perspective on the night.
On a totally different note, we got an e-mail from a young woman from the UK who is planning a tour of the Midwest this coming March. Here is a link to her website:
click on the link to her song “He can’t save her”. Let me know if this would be something you’d enjoy and I will keep you posted on the specfics. I told her I’d love to put something together on this end when she comes to the US, probably rent a coffee house or other cozy intimate place to listen to live music.
It’s not about #’s for me. I would have enjoyed myself if I had been the only one, but when the dust settled, I think there were at least 150 people, possibly 175. The energy you feel when you see 150 people having a good time listening to live music in a 100 yr old barn is hard to describe. Wish you could have been there, maybe next year.
