Week One of the Festival has concluded. Thanks to everyone for your enthusiasm and involvement in the various programs and activities. Despite some soggy weather, the Festival site has been hopping with activity and energy. As the artists take a two-day breather and we straighten up the area for Week Two, our ears are still ringing (in a good way) with the sounds of three dozen feet stomping away in the dance barn, the buzz of master barber Denny Moe’s hair clippers, and a hundred different melodies sounded out on pan pipes, igils, bagpipes, and fiddles. We look forward to kicking this all off again on July 3.
