Kudos to Andrew Lawrence for organizing a great weekend. The clinics by Stephane Wrembel, Michael, and John Jorgenson were relaxed and informative, I met a lot of really great folks, and the Saturday night concert by Stephane's trio and Jorgenson's quintet would have blown my socks off if I had been wearing any.

Andrew did a great job putting this together. Here's hoping this is just the start of a new tradition.
Reject the null hypothesis.

    As always, the highlight for me was meeting so many 'fellow travellers'. Next year, however, I'm demanding that Scot stay for the whole weekend; I feel a strong urge to barbeque with the man. And a huge thanks to Michael for not only being there but for apparently shipping the entire DjangoBooks inventory East for the weekend. Really, it was like a mini-HMV there in the lobby. Beautiful.

    Thanks to everyone who came out, and if you didn't, we'll hope to see you next year!

    Hats off to Andrew Lawrence for putting on an absolutely awesome festival! Andrew put in a tremendous amount of work putting this festival together. We all owe him a big thanks and our continued support in the future.

    For those of you who didn't make's what you missed:

    -Stunning performances by Stephane Wremble and John Jorgenson in a quaint New England Church.

    -Jamming, jamming, and more jamming till the wee hours. So wild the neighbors even called the that's a party!

    -Professional instruction via workshops by Stephen Wremble and John Jorgenson.

    -Some guy from Seattle was also doing so many work shops it was like Gypsy Jazz University.

    -A Gypsy jazz store with every CD, Book, pick, and string you'd ever want.

    -An outdoor Sunday afternoon Impromptu performance by Stephane Wrembel...awesome!

    -Some great weather!!!

    And all this was in beautiful Northampton Mass...probably the coolest college town I've ever seen.

    It was great meeting the East Coast crew: Jack, Scot, Tony, Mike, Paul, Jared, and many more. You guys are keeping the music alive back East....keep up the good work.

    See you all next year!
