Well, it’s exciting to be featured on a TV program anytime but it’s totally thrilling when the program turns out so well:

Check it out! My thanks and praise to Shawn Hutchinson and his crew for boiling down my life and work to a fine eight-minute piece.

    Steve, how great to run into you—and in Portland, no less!

    I got to thinking about you last weekend at the event at Sahuaro Ranch Park.
    Five years ago when City of Phoenix wanted to charge Lon Austin, et al.,
    for the use of Encanto Park to put on that annual folk festival (for free),
    a couple of us “out Glendale way”
    lured Lon and the festival to the Ranch, right out back of Glendale PL.
    Two days, 150 performers, many of whom you’d recognize, made up the 5th
    Glendale Folk & Heritage Festival. It was pretty great, and not the least of which was the appearance of Dom Flemons, and his wife Rianna, of the Carolina Chocolate Drops. You may remember Dom from Encanto Park days— the student from NAU who performed on the bones, the jug, and most anything he could get his hands on. He/they now live in NYC near Washington Square, and seem to be taking advantage of that location—
    I heard them on NPR about a year ago.

    The only way it could have been better was if you’d been there! Maybe next year? It sounds like you’ve truly found your niche in Portland, but Springtime in the Valley can be pretty great, and a definite change from Portland in March… We would all fight to provide you with lodgings, but I would demand finders rights…AND I live close to the Ranch.
