This was the 25th annual Blueberry Festival at one of the neatest places in Bethlehem. It’s an old farm that has existed in the city limits for a long time; it was rediscovered and restored to an incredibly wonderful place. Herb gardens, restored barn.
The connection goes way back to my friendship with Gertie Fox, a wonderful eco-activist who literally patrolled the Monocasy Creek looking for polluters, I was asked to play for the first one, out on the stoop in some rubble, no sound, plunking out ‘Fishin’ Blues’. Kim, my wife, was asked to investigate vintage apple varieties in order to restore the orchard. They are fine trees now.
A classy festival, great crafts, fine local music and great sound. Truly a pleasure.
