Thread Name: Kytrad's award concert
The concert is being produced by the National Council for the Traditional Arts (NCTA), which also puts on the US National Folk Festival each year (and for which I volunteer). Last year's concert was a wonderful, seamless celebration of both the musicians and craftspeople receiving awards, thanks to the excellent production sense of Dennis Blackledge of the NCTA - this year's will hopefully be the same! And, it's happening on my birthday...what a wonderful present, to get to hear KyTrad, Kevin Burke, Flory Jagoda, Bob McQuillan and Mingo Saldivar (5 of my favorite musicians), as well as the other talented folks with whom I'm not so familiar.

I've got my ticket, and I tell you what I think I'll do,
I'm goin' down to Lisner to settle down...
