Folk Festival
St.
Peter, Minnesota
.

  I will not be set up at Rock Bend again this year. My big old tree died and they cut it down, so needless to say... no more shade! I will be hanging out at the North Stage most of the time and will have an Octave Mandolin or two with me. Hope to see you there!
