Thanks from the Gourds

To the great people of the valley: I and my band, The Gourds, from Austin, Texas, had a wonderful opportunity recently to perform at the Northern Rockies Folk Festival, Friday, Aug. 1. Let me say that we were overwhelmed with the experience.

We are still talking about the wide-open kindness and hospitality of your people. The festival itself was exceptionally managed. The feeling in this community was inspiring to us as well. We genuinely appreciate the chance to share our music with all of you. And, we hope to return again someday. Our best wishes to everyone. Thank you for the good times.
