Being in two places at once
November 14, 2005
On Friday night, I had the great pleasure of being on-hand for the opening night concert of the 39th Kent State Folk Festival with John Gorka and David Francey. We had a near sell-out in person, and I know a lot of you were listening online as well.
It was kind of a crazy night. We had lots of set up and, with the theatre being so full, we had to hit the ground running once the doors were opened. I sold tons of CDs for both Gorka and Francey (along with Folk Fest T-shirts). It's always so much fun introducing new music to people - spreading the love.
The performances were fabulous, everyone loved the show. Ironically, I didn't make it into the theatre, but I listened online when I had to drive back for bags. I'm listening now, and it's just so much fun to hear the show now that I have time not to feel fretful. BTW, Gorka was joined onstage by Michael Manring and Francey brought along Shane Simpson. Gorka and Francey are both really nice people as well (Francey is very excited about Folk Alley and took buttons and magnets back to Canada). Well done, everyone!
