Folk Festival Weekend!

This past weekend was our 5th Folk Festival here in town, and it's still a wonderful event. We have such a good time! The three of us wandered all over listening to live music from different countries, lying in the sun (and ducking the massive thunderstorms, but we lived), eating good fair food, and rocking out. We saw musicians from:
  • Russia
  • Slovakia
  • Puerto Rico
  • Dominican Republic
  • Congo
  • Iran
  • Azerbaijan
  • Japan
  • Sweden
  • Nova Scotia
plus Hawaii, New Orleans, Texas blues, rockabilly...honestly. They were ALL amazing.

Here's just a tiny sample of one of the best acts we saw. If you ever get a chance to see live Japanese Taiko drumming, DO. They had the whole tent standing, cheering, and clapping as best we could in time.

Oh, I love Taiko drumming! The whole festival sounds like so much fun. You do the coolest things with your family. Glad you managed to duck the thunderstorms. :)
