Guest Blog Entry: Ren Fest
-posted by beingkatie on behalf of guest blogger, Jay Lee–
Gadz, I have been involved at this festival for many’s a year (and I spent all me money on whiskey and beer). Mitch and I calculated that the band has been doing it for about 15 years.
I have been involved in some capacity or another since year 5 and this is year 31.
We have successfully made it through 2 weekends of the festival. The first weekend was unbelievably hot and miserable and there was absolutely no “magic” what-so-ever. Bleh!
Last weekend was much better. Cooler with low humidity.
Last Sunday (for a song or two) we were joined on stage by our friends from Queen Anne’s Lace, a lovely all woman acapella group. In this picture you can also see Jim Hancock, The Burley Minstrel who has been joining us in our first set of the day.
With any luck the weather will continue to become more moderate and things will pick up.
BTW- that is Jay in the blue shirt.
