Returning to moderate the Flickr Group and select the galleries for the third year in a row is Ariel Fielding, a former Folklife Festival Fellow in Community and Online Engagement. Ariel first learned to use an SLR camera and a darkroom at the age of six, and has an enduring interest in documentary photography. She recently collaborated with photographer Michael Barker on ‘ALPHA Alternative School 1972/2012,’ an ethnographic art project based on environmental portraiture.

    Could anyone tell me the names of the two women that sang at the 6 o’clock Hungarian Peacock Gala that was cut short. I really enjoyed their singing. One was cut off in the middle of singing. I enjoyed the music and was hoping someone could tell me their names. Thanks!

      We can try to look into it for you. Just to confirm, would you mind sending us all of the information you know (day, time, stage, etc)? You can reply in this thread.

    It was on Sunday (6-30) at the 6 p.m. performance on the Danubia stage. There were two ladies that sang, a couple of groups dancing, and a guy with an unusual instrument that he played that was also really good. I believe they said one of the women had placed in the Hungarian version of American Idol.
