Coming home to the Tucson Folk Festival

We played in the Tucson Folk Festival today, so I'm going to interrupt my ramblings about our week in Nashville to talk about that.

The theme for this year's Folk Fest: hot. It was in the mid-90s when we got there and the high 90s by the time we played. Even for Tucson, this is unusual. I was afraid people would opt to stay home with the AC blasting.

We lucked out, though. The stage we were assigned was La Cocina at Old Town Artisans. A huge tree grows in the middle of the seating area, providing shade aplenty. Even better, we had an appreciative audience. Really seemed to like us. Not bad, given that a decent number of the folks didn't know who we were and had probably only decided to stay so they wouldn't get baked.

A couple of songs into the set, I mentioned that we'd just gotten back after recording in Nashville. "It's been hard acclimating to day-to-day life after being there for a week," I said. "But playing at the Tucson Folk Festival makes the reentry a lot easier."

It's true, too. I can't imagine a better homecoming.
