Loretta Freeman talked me into working with Shindig on the Green and the Mountain Dance and Music Festival this year. I had been many times as a patron to the MDMF and to sit on the green and listen but this was my first time behind the scenes. She convinced me with offers of Okie Dokie BBQ and a double scoop of Hop Ice Cream. I am sold it is an amazing group of people on the Folk Heritage Committee that make mountain music live on. Do you think they will ever have room for a liar and storyteller?
