For the 3rd year in a row, I performed at the Glendale Folk & Heritage Festival and again, for the third time, the weather was GORGEOUS at the Sahuaro Ranch Park. It was a touch warm for this time of year but we really didn’t mind. It is always good to see the musicians I only see at such events, living a good distance away as I do. And this year I was “drafted” into service to conduct a workshop and a songwriter’s circle where I got to know a few more folks a little better.
Making this “family reunion” of folkies even more delightful for me was the presence of my 3-year-old grand-daughter Emily and of course her mom and dad. My daughter Rachel is a wonderful mom and her husband Cody is true father. They make me proud. I guess this was the first time Emily became “cognizant” that her Grandfather was actually “on stage” before and audience. She ran right up the edge of the stage ad asked with exclamation: “GrandPa! What are you DOING?” I laughed and admitted “I really don’t know what I’m doing, but I’m going to perform anyway”
Here are a few photos.
