I am working toward becoming a regular folk festival player. Have been going to the northeast regional folk Alliance and the people's music network conferences the last couple of years. I have many songs which are not being heard and now hope to find some like minded musicians that might want to put together an outfit and target the folk festivals and songwriter showcases.
