More Firsts

I spent last Sunday at one of my favorite Colorado music events, the Folks Festival in Lyons. I go every year - with or without escort - and every year, I'm blown away by the talent of people I've never heard of but will never forget. Here's me getting my chest signed by Melissa Ferrick, who blew everyone away with her sheer brilliance and endless humor. (The Boston Globe said, "She appeared at times to be channeling Bruce Springsteen and Rickie Lee Jones simultaneously.") I've never been one for autographs but when she offered to sign "body parts and CDs in the back tent", I figured it was time for another First. Melissa did not seem to mind.

OMFG woman. I should have known you'd have the good taste to have Ferrick put her hands down your shirt, hahaha.

You and I should talk about MF someday, she played a private show for my 40th birthday ya know. :-)

WHAT??? A private show from MF????

Denise, you are even cooler than I imagined. Melissa completely won everyone over - better than Missy Higgins or KT Tunstall, who always played that day.

Would I like this woman? Should I try checking her out on the iTunes? Does this head make me look fat...?

To be honest, I'm not sure if she is your cup of tea but her songwriting really blew me away. Just to be safe, I would definitely check her out. You cannot risk missing out on such things.

Awesome! Friends went this year and had a blast too. I love that venue. But were you completely soaked at the end of it???
