Well, I certainly blew it this year. I had my head so far dug into a hole I completely didn’t realize that the Albuquerque Folk Festival was going to be this weekend. Fortunately, however, Apple Mountain Music came to my rescue. Owner Debra Fortess is graciously allowing me to camp out at her booth and display and demonstrate how simple and easy it is to slip a Busker Bag over your instrument of choice. I’ll be there most of the day. If you are going to be there and would like a personal demonstration, you can call me on my cell (505-463-5044).
This year’s event looks like it is going to be a real winner, kicking off with a very special performance by the Claire Lynch Band Friday night, in a benefit for the Folk Fest. But that’s only the tip of the iceberg, music fans. There will be plenty of music to go around on Saturday, with Americana icons Tim O’Brien and Darrell Scott performing a couple of times, as well as many other national and regional acts.
There will also be workshops, jams, vendor booths, and all-in-all just a great ol’ time to be had!
