Not your Grandma's Folk Festival

Actually, there were quite a few ladies there that could fit the "grandma" label. The Folk Festival happened at Hill this weekend. Half of Ann Arbor was there so I won't say too much. It took me a while to realize that they got Colin Hay to be the MC. His sense of humor grabbed me more than hearing his classics. That's not to say he wasn't excellent, he just had the funniest segues. The other point of focus for me, personally, was Brother Joscephus and the Love Revolution.
They were a flashbulb of energy and not on the stage long enough. There were ten of them, and it felt  like a circus act that was directed by a gospel choir. I don't know if that's the best way to put it, but they were truly captivating. They'll be back in April and I will probably gush over them then.
