... the really interesting thing is that folks were introduced to new music and unfamiliar songs and arrangements, and unheard songs hmmmm, hmmmmmm, different tempo's and arrangements - something all together foreign perhaps.
But it was wonderful to observe the various generational and age groups interact. Most everyone enjoyed being connected in the most important of ways.
A complaint? It's a minor one for sure. Perhaps the promoters should consider having a female artist/band as part of the repertoire?
What's the recipe?
- A definitive sound mix.
- Talented artists.
- A picturesque landscape.
- A smaller than expected crowd.
- Short lines.
Thanks for coming Mr Dylan and friends, your welcome back anytime!
