Storyhill Fest. An amazing lineup of folk musicians who came together at Clearwater Forest Camp near Deerwood Minnesota to round out our Labor Day Weekend. It's just twenty miles from Brainerd. Practically in our backyard. Dick and I attended the festival on Sunday, September 1st. Our third year consecutively. The event is organized and hosted by Chris Cunningham and John Hermanson, a folk duo known as Storyhill. (This photo is from our attendance in 2012.)
Avalon is one of their songs. Beautifully touching. "Sister leave me here to breathe my final breath. I leave you facing life in the face of death. There is no deeper truth. There is no truer rest. Avalon. Avalon." It will be played at Dick's and my funerals... a peaceful sendoff. One of my favorite performances this year was Love We Are We Love by the duo "The Sea The Sea." Last year's festival featured Carrie Elkin and Danny Schmidt, who were present at this year's event but didn't perform on the day we attended. Their song, Company of Friends impacted my life... my lifetime. Storyhill Fest. Impactful. Life changing.
