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.
