Shenandoah Blues Fest

Hey. I’m playing a 7:20 slot today, in theory, give or take an hour. Come see. It’ll be new for me, too. I’ve never actually BEEN to a blues festival before. What to wear?

The weather is fantastic. I am celebrating cutting down a locust that was destroying an early 19th century brick wall. I have also begun stripping the wall of ivy and some other noxious, invasive, non-native vines and weeds. Great exercise.

I am a musician, a Ph. D. folklorist, and an oral historian. I have been a freelance, contract folklore fieldworker and consultant; staff folklorist; arts program director and grants administrator; journalist; and historical society director. I train volunteer interviewers for the Veterans History Projecty of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. And I play guitar and "interpret" folk songs in coffeehouses, bars, libraries, schools, senior centers, and other places humans gather.
