The Folk Parade was amazing! Much thanks to Barbara and Mike of the Spinning Leaves for putting it together and to all the musicians who came together in a way only we can do it. Our music community is truly one of a kind. And Lisa Schaffer who is always there to capture the moment with her camera.

Below are some pictures from our set, plus one from the encore. We had quite a few people on stage with us: Anna, Bea, and Cass Sadler; Ross Bellenoit, Allison Polans, Barbara Gettes and Mike Baker, and some more folks too I think for our last sing-along. Thanks to all,on stage and off, for sharing those songs with us.
