1.   Chit chat From Gloira Holloway – news from the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival :   Craig & I very much  enjoyed the festival last week.    What fun to see the Guthrie family (cousins, sisters, brothers, little kids, et al)  on stage  w/Sarah Lee & Johnny leading everybody in song..   And guess who came & joined the chorus?   Yep.  Arlo.  Plus he did his own set.  ****    Our Fla boys,  Grant Peeples & Ronny Elliott, were very well rec’d.    I was proud of them.  ****   The whole festival – from start to finish was such a treat..   You might wanna check it out next year.   You’ll be glad you did.   ****     I always hesitate “writing a check that my body may not can cash”   but  I took a chance & approached a few of my favorite musicians & told them about our SoTpaHouseConcerts  &  the Concerts in the UU Dome  &  encouraged them to let me know if they wind up in this general area & have open dates to fill.     And BTW,  one of my favorite musicians, Ellis Paul, was there.   Ellis is actually coming to Tampa.  He’s appearing at The Attic in Ybor City on Sept 9.  I plan to be there
