The National Folk Festival enjoyed its third year in Butte. I was a volunteer for Friday and Saturday nights, taking around a big bucket and asking people for money. Never thought of myself as a fundraiser but it turns out I am not too shabby at "The Ask." Helped that I got to listen to some amazing zydeco from Geno Delafose and French Rockin' Boogie while I bopped around saying, "Would you like to help support the festival tonight?"
We took the kids back the next day to dance to this band. Because I really wanted to, and it was hard to dance with the big red bucket in hand!
I also got to hear some bluegrass and honky tonk, but honestly Geno is my new hero.
You can check him out on Amazon. Yes, indeedy.
