Guest of Honour
Alexa performed two seta at Harmuni 2. The first was our opening concert on Friday evening, and the second was on Saturday afternoon.
The Golden Oldies singalong on Friday night featured some of those old, best loved filksongs that old-timers think have been done to death, and newcomers have never heard. Joe Raftery compiled a short song-sheet so that we could all sing along.
Each year the Ohio Valley Filk Fest host awards for the best in World filk music. This year's nominees include a strong UK and German contingent. On Saturday afternoon a concert featured the nominations for some of the categories, performed in a few cases by their writers, but in most cases by scratch groups of performers.
The instaband concert was held on Sunday afternoon, with three bands each performing one or two songs.
