Saturday Market 6/8/13

Big Story of the Week-Market canceled, then re-instated. An email circulated Friday night, canceling the Market due to flooding at the site. Then, early Market morning another email arrived, saying "never mind", Market was on again. Fortunately, since I don't check my email regularly enough, I missed out on all the cyber excitement, and just showed up as usual. The weather turned sunny and beautiful.

 Second Big Story of the Week-Change in Market Music. We have had various musicians come to Market for years, to entertain vendors and visitors. They play about 2-3 hours, using a mixture of covers and original music. Last summer our wonderful manager Martha got a call from some ASCAP weenie, demanding that the Market pay royalties for the cover tunes. It seemed less than reasonable considering the tiny amount of time involved, so what Martha decided to do is book acts that only play original and public domain music. It has worked out very well.The music is refreshingly entertaining, and fits into the Market's outdoor, rural situation. For instance, these two guys played great guitar and fiddle bluegrass tunes.

Saturday market 6/1/2013

Hottest day of the season,so far. Still sold many cups of hot coffee. Remember, hot drinks cool you off better than cold drinks on a hot day. Google it! Here's the pix.

 This is the guy from last year with the battery powered PA system, and the chorus echo. He sings his own harmonies-So cool.

 Hair of the week.
