It was magical at the Cello Madness Congress on April 9th 2011.

May 27-30 Recap-
Lightning in a Bottle!

Recap: I made it to the festival.. I didn't end up riding the whole way.. I took a train from Salinas to Santa Barbara and then Santa Barbara to Santa Ana and rode the 15 miles to the festival. Too much weight and too far to go in too short of a time. But I got there on time!
LIB was quite possibly the coolest festival I have been to ever. So much art, so much love!
I had a blast and sold out of Get Loopy and Live @ Fusion Festival CDs. I guess it would have been smart to bring more CDs..so much weight though...Lots of people came up and told me they enjoyed the music I was making so I must have been doing something right!
