Performing at Central Music Festival was a blast

Sitting on a soft bed of grass, with the sun starting to set while legendary Honeyboy Edwards played his slide and blues guitar and sang in his still smooth at 94 years of age voice, I couldn’t help but think I had been transported to another place and time. I have not yet returned from that bliss!

This festival was so fun. Everyone was happy and kind and helpful.

I cherish all the smiles and hugs and warm conversations! This is community at its best!

I hope this festival grows and I hope the Prairie singer songwriters/musicians are asked back. Though we are local, we were treated just as well as the headliners.

It was such a joy to be able to perform here and to share these few days with the spectacular talent and such an appreciative audience.

This was a true highlight of the summer!

Congrats to Mike Bradford, the Central Music Festival committee members and all the amazing volunteers!

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to take part in this wonderful gathering and thank you so much for all that you do to make it what it is: a unique, professionally run music festival right here in our own backyard.
