HGG8: The Concert Performers

This was one of biggest turnouts of many “regulars,” two new featured performers (Philippe Fouquet and Brian Torosian), and a couple we haven’t seen in a long time (Dan LaVoie and Bill Dutcher).  West Coast-only Jeff Titus even drove all the way from California with Oracle (not sure who got the front passenger seat – Bina, or the instrument).

I did M.C. duties Saturday night and had a blast (some might say too much so…) while Stephen did Sunday.

I also did a pre-show Crash Course in Harp Guitars.

This year the entire Miner family (sans niece Lauren and nephew Charlie) was in attendance.

L-R: Don West (my sister’s husband), my brother Mark, his wife Barb, Jaci, me, Mom, my sister Kris, Dad, Sarah (Don & Kris’ daughter)
