I really did enjoy this event. The festival seating was a big plus. However, the 2 o'clock show was filled with a very old audience. The walkers were lined up like a used car lot.

Most of the crowd was over 80, but this act would be fun for anyone with broad musical tastes (my wife and I brought our 12-year-old daughter, and we're well under 80). The're very good musicians -- to my untrained ear.

It was great. Open seating was a surprise but it worked out just fine. The group was terrific and we bought 2 CD's
