Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Bassen, I am not a performer, but after reading your post I think that sometimes one audience member is all that is needed--if it's the right audience member.

One of the best folk music concerts I ever went to was several years ago at the folk music coffeehouse I go to most often. It was the last performance taking place before Christmas, and it was pouring outside. Only about five audience members showed up in addition to the volunteers. The performer asked us to move up to the front. Then she had the sound system turned off. Now that's acoustic! She sang songs with choruses for us to sing along on, and sing we did.
