I had an open Saturday morning at the conference to take in the experience as it rolled. I wanted to hit the road to get back to PA in the afternoon and planned to do it after the lunch. I cruised and enjoyed some nice interactions with folks on the circuit that I had stumbled upon, especially with fellow bookers of folk clubs, festivals, and hopefully encouraged some gigs at Passim’s, Caffe Lena, Eighth Step, Philly, Falcon Ridge, Old Songs, and more. I guess it’s a bucket list.


I got positive vibes from most of these venues, and it’s up to me to follow through. I’ve garnered some respect, I guess, through this folk mist, that I should play these places. I agree. I’m finally ready. ..and it’s adult AND kids situations.


So, it was time for lunch.  Yumm.
