The LEAF Festival in North Carolina
Just back from a magical getaway weekend at the LEAF festival in Black Mountain, N.C.
Well recommended for those living in these parts.
Highlights for me included playing my Djembe impromptu with the Atlanta Swamp Opera Cajun Band ("Oh, Madeleine!"), and later again at midnight in the Drum Circle, and tenaciously hanging in there to force a defensive three-hour draw with the chess senior master Robert Frederick (although admittedly he was playing six other people at the same time!).
