this summer i went to my first grassroots fest EVER and i had an AMAZING time. I'm from Chicago, my name is Julia, and I just graduated high school. I went with two friends of mine, who are cousins, and we stayed in Ithaca with their cousin julia... which is also my name! all of us made it to the festival everyday. the first night we decided to camp out was the same early morning when the rain began!!! ahhh!! we woke up and our tent was deeply flooding in more thn one of its corners, and we were all wet! we decided against camping out after that.


oh, and this was the grassroots in trumansburg i'm referring to.

That fiddle player's name is Johnny Donegan. He's from Ireland and he's amazing. A few years ago we were on a beer run (more like walk) and he was hammered flying around (riding on) a shopping cart in the grocery store. He almost ran over us. We couldn't really understand too much of what he was saying but I don't know if that was because of the accent or he was so drunk. Oh, and yah, his music rocks.

Wow so I noticed this post more than 6 months after it was posted - but I want to encourage posting in this community! I think maybe I could tell the official grassroots site folks about it or something.

Btw, I started this community with my boy Pookie who had posted before you :D

I'm SO glad you went and had a good time! I actually had to move to Seattle very suddenly which kept me from participating in roots 06, but I'm trying really hard to get back for this year, yay!

Odd, I know a Julia that lives in Ithaca - last name begin with an L?

THANKS AGAIN!

grassroots has an official myspace page. i don't see why it wouldn't work over here too. it's getting to be that time to get all hyped up.
