Susan of DT Old Songs Fest--2014 (NY, June 27-29) (21) RE: Old Songs Fest--2014 (NY, June 27-29) 29 Jun 14

My, it was nice to just be audience for a change. My theory on the wonderful weather is because we did not have to batten down the booth every time it rained, so it did not bother to rain.

There were some wonderful workshops, like the Supernatural. Anita Best is marvelous. The unscheduled 8 am ballad session is always a highlight of the festival. We also went to singalongs from the Boston and Pickin' N' Singin' Gatherin' clubs, which were a lot of fun.

I was glad to hear Cindy Mangsen and Deb Cowan singing more ballads. They are both excellent ballad singers and have been doing fewer of them than they used to. Both said they were singing more ballads now.

The festival was a bit heavy on instrumental music and rather light on singers, for my taste.
