Sounds great! Like I say know many of those folks I meet each year a festival concerts and such from across the country and who come up from the other side of the border. Really focused critical listeners {non-players} who know and truly ENJOY the music in question.

The ones that irk me are the ones that go to concerts and talk the whole time and never really listen or hear a single note played and then go on to tell their friends that they saw the "right" folks to try and get the one up on the social ladder over them. Prententious?.... oh yes.
