Mountain Stage NewSong Festival
Our Tribe's own KJ Denhert was last year's winner and was featured on Mountain Stage. She was one of 5 co-winners. Also, Ina May Wool was a finalist and Rhonda Schuster was a semi-finalist. Not a bad representation of the area's finest.
Check out the site for details.
I have added a few Kindred Folk links for some new friends that we met. John William Davis and "best song" winner Jonathan Pointer are among our Kindred.
