Saturday the 20th Barry Mitterhoff and I descended to Schwenksville and the 50th anniversary of the Philly Folk Festival. In spite of the storms that were coming and going all weekend, when we got on the stage at 22:20 it was simply a beautiful night.

Philadelphia Folk Festival Set:

1. Hesitation Blues
2. Second Chances
3. I Am The Light Of This World
4. Come Back Baby with David Bromberg
5. Nine Pound Hammer with David Bromberg
6. That’ll Never Happen No More with David Bromberg

On Sunday, the day started with gospel from the Campbell Brothers and friends… what a way to start any Sunday! After their set it was time for the ‘Workshop.’ Roy Book Binder hosted the stage and the luminaries were as follows: Tom Rush, me (Jorma Kaukonen), David Bromberg, The Wood Brothers, and the Philly Jug Band. Good music and good fellowship all the way around.

As soon as we all finished our little show, the skies began to darken and typical August Festival Fashion and Myron and I beat feet for Ohio and home.

    Congrats to Izze! Earthquake here in new York city today. Was at work on 34th street and whole building shook and swayed! I guess you remember that from your California days!

    Hi Dave- wow! It was scary! Of course they made us go back to work! I did manage to duck into Playwrights on 35th for a quick Chardonnay!

    Somehow I think an evacuation going down 9 flights of crowded stairs when there is an earthquake is not how it should be done…are you on the west or east side? I’m next to the Manhattan Mall, and that was evacuated as well..glad it all turned out OK

    Hi Dave,
    I am across from empire state building, next door to Banana Republic. We are on the 11th floor. No one really knew what to do, since we were not sure at first that it was an earthquake. We thought it was a terrorist act due to the buildings proximity to the empire state building. Glad everyone is safe! As Jorma would say “onward” LOL!!

    Jorma, wonderful performance this year. I regret missing the workshop but alas, I had to pick my son up at the airport.
