Here in Halfway, OR we have an annual music festival called Pine Fest. Its a two-day celebration in September featuring music from all over the region. In between the big acts, local musicians take the stage for short 20 minute sets. My husband and I joined our neighbor, Curt, for a 6 song set that included some Joni Mitchell, Tom Petty, Indigo Girls, Bonnie Raitt, and The Beatles.
It was a blast playing with my partner for our sweet little community. The audience was very appreciative and said all sorts of nice things afterwards, which made me feel like a million bucks. The takeaway from this whole weekend is that my partner and I want to keep playing together - just for fun. Just for us.
