Here’s a quote just posted on YouTube by an unknown anonymous, but very welcome new fan!!
“Haven’t missed a Tucson Folk Festival in years. This year (’08) it was even better. We usually hang out at the Old Town Artisans stage. It’s a real close-up experience. There was a fellow performing this year, Dana Hubbard, who just absolutely stole the show as far as I was concerned. His words were magic and guitar playing just extraordinary. Can’t wait ’til next year.”
