I did it! I had been wanting to participate in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival since my Juilliard days. Well folks, I finally did it. And boy what an event! Today alone I saw a poetry reading, a singer/songwriter, a Persian music concert, had a photo shoot with Laleh, played my concert and then saw a comedy/accordionist (it was my first instrument), Liz Skitch’s “Skitch-Tease”. WOW!!! This has been truly memorable and exciting. There is so much wonderful busking on every street corner, too. It’s such a thrill just walking and listening to all the different global talents that congregate in this wonderful city. I get so inspired watching other great performers in action. I was thrilled with my well attended concerts and my audience response was fantastic. I met so many lovely people and playing with Amy Abler (within music and at the pub) is always a blast. Thanks also for these lovely fellows who graciously posed for a picture with us at the pub on my last night in Edinburgh. Memorable. Truly fantastic. All of it!!!!
