Subject: RE: Favorite Music Festivals
The Alaska Folk Festival, in Juneau Alaska, is a wonderfully unspoiled, free (supported by memberships) 7-day music happening. One Guest Artist group (this year it's bluegrass: Bill Evans, Suzanne Thomas, Missy Raines, Jim Hurst and Don Rigsby) each year and dozens of 15 minute sets from all over Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. Jamming everywhere, dancing, all nighters... you name it. This year it's April 5-11 and we're celebrating the 25th fest.
