Sisters Folk Festival

Last weekend, we attended the Sisters Folk Festival and saw lots of people from Song Camp milling about and performing.  I don't think they recognized us without a green apron on, hands full of good food.

We planned ahead, looked at the schedule, packed snacks/dinner, and spent all day there on Saturday.  What a fantastic day!  The park was filled with food vendors, music vendors, a merch tent, and more.  Music highlights of the day were the following:

Here's a few pics:

Deep fried desserts...tempting!

Took this pic for my brother, Ted, and my friend, Josh.  Lovers of hot sauce.
Gosh, how do we come down from such an amazing week?  Lots of music!  We hosted a Uke Newbies jam at our place on Monday.  Nine brave souls showed up, uke in hand with lots of questions.  Emil created a wonderful outline, and he taught the session while I snacked on food in the kitchen.

I splurged and bought a new soprano ukulele.  So, I'm excited to try out a smaller instrument and hope it will inspire me to practice, practice, practice.
