hanging out at this Free Folk Festival.
Faith Petric is a 94 year old wonder. We first heard Faith sing folk music 31 years ago when we first started dating. She's an old timey folksinger from San Francisco. Here she is singing to a group of children and adults...and I was thrilled to be in her presence. She has more spunk and life in her than anyone I know.
DH attended many workshops throughout the day, and I went to hear Sea Shanties, Yiddish music, songs of the times about Women's Right To Choose, Health Care reform, etc.
and good old folk music! 31 years ago when I first met the man who would later become DH, we used to go to The Freight and Salvage and The Starry Plough in Berkeley to hear this group: Suzy and Eric Thompson. Suzie sings folk, Cajun music in a voice and on a fiddle that makes your heart sing. She is as good as she used to be and probably better with her continued music success over the years.
I made a video but have no faith can get it uploaded but will try. You can hear DH singing along with Suzy in the background.
We had the added joy of my daughter, SIL, and grand kids showing up for the show late in the afternoon. We had time to enjoy music with them, play outside in the playground there, and then went out to dinner.
My grand daughter liked looking at my zentangled cats, etc. in my sketchbook (that I just happened to have with me) and took to drawing her own. She drew this flower herself and filled it in zentangle style with no prompting from me. She is a quick study and has an uninhibited free hand while drawing. I was extremely impressed and I think you would have been too.
