great big hullabaloo called "The New England Americana Festival" - taking
place over three nights in Harvard Square, Cambridge, Ma. The organizers are
good friends and have worked very hard putting heart, sweat and soul into making
it a success. If you enjoy our music, I hope you will tell your friends in
the area about this great event. It shall be.
