palm creek highlights

Palm Creek Folk Festival was nice. Went there from about 2pm until about 9pm on Saturday. Serious people arrive Friday afternoon and head home Tuesday. I can see why. Bumped into lots of people. Fire dancing was pretty good. Missed the flumes and hannah hartman. :( Saw dave (the hardest working man in show biz) on his way from one gig to another. Hung out with gai and charles. Got an autographed cd from rosie burgess. There's a different vibe with the youth festival component. It's nice. More soccer moms and dads than hippies, but in a good way. Kids having a brilliant time. And some killer high school bands, though they needed a decent bass amp. I will lend them mine next time perhaps.
