We attended the Kick-off party for the Tucson Folk Festival last night at “The Old Town Artisans” in Tucson. What a great gathering of musicians. I was really impressed by the musicianship I saw. Rick Heyman and I were honored to perform along with them all. While all we saw and heard were wonderful, I want to give special mention to a few. If you have a chance, be sure to see and hear “Crystal Ridge” – a four piece blue-grass band with great harmomies. Of course our host band, “The Determined Luddites” are also a must-see. First and foremost however, be sure to catch Festival Headliner John Coinman
on Sunday night on the Plaza stage. WOW. What a great songwriter and a really nice guy. He’s got Tucson in his blood and you can hear it in his music.
