There's a crack across the windshield
Don't remember how it got there
Seems like something's always kicking up
Along the road
There's a book by Vonnegut
My copy worn from reading it
Years ago I circled every phrase of,
"So it goes"
(from Strange Life)
May 2-3, 2015. What does it take to put on a successful weekend-long event attracting throngs of music lovers? The Columbus Folk Music Society seems to have figured it out. We just returned from the 19th annual Central Ohio Folk Festival and were very impressed by so many elements from the signage which helped guide visitors from miles away, to the friendly yellow-shirted volunteers staffing the registration table, tagging instruments in the lock up tent, and selling merch for musicians who were performing or running a workshop. We want to give a special shout out to festival co-directors Art and Sharon; to Mike, who ran sound for the main stage; and to Diane who encouraged us to apply.
