Zinn The Mood:

Really dig your show, Rob - thanks! Becoming one of my favorite. It’s like traveling without moving.

Last week you mentioned the Golden Festival. Had heard about it before and been wanting to go. And here it is this weekend, a 15 minute walk away! But the ticket is steep, and may in the end be prohibitive in the end for a stay-at-home Dad. Though I have some inside info from a Bulgarian dad in the neighborhood who plays the traditional strapped two-headed drum and goes annually that they don’t advertise it but food is probably included. Still, $90 is a big hit.

Man, sounds so good though. Came upon a similar Eastern European music jamboree upstate in the big hall of a campground where I’d just played a private gig (when I was working) and found it mesmerizing, so joyous and impassioned.

Thanks again - your show and its scope is such a treat.

Thanks very much for the kind words Zinn. Golden Fest is pricey - they have to raise a lot of money to pay for the hall rental. Food is included though!
