Ferrara modestly claims to have simply closed her eyes and put up her feet during the small session with Dani, Barry, Mick, et al.. In fact, she sang. It was the first time I ever heard her sing alone. What a sweet and beautiful voice!

There were some other vocal surprises during the weekend. Although I have heard Jeri sing a few harmonies and such, it was an incredible joy to hear her alone on stage. You could quite nearly see the energy travel all the way from her heels to her throat as she put her soul into her song.

Tinker also has a powerful and beautiful voice. She also has a tremendous store of songs and truly funny personal anecdotes.

SINSULL treated us to her sweetly trilling voice with which she shared some songs she learned from her father and elsewhere. She blew us away with her "Bird In A Guilded Cage".

LaMarca and her musical partner, (whose name escapes me at the moment,) supplied some lovely songs at a variety of workshops as well as at one of the open-mike's. Beautifully arranged vocals...fine guitar backing.

This weekend was also the first time I ever heard Kath Westra sing. This was a real treat!

There were so many beautiful voices! I have been blessed with having heard most of them before. It was great to hear them again.
