Next week is the 25th anniversary of a local and hugely popular event..the Grassroots Festival of Music and Dance . When I reminisce over this massive reunion of musicians and friends, my thoughts bounce like a super ball. Jimmie Dale Gilmore is still a stand out...sun setting behind him, hair blowing in the wind as he sang "just a wave not the water'..and following that was dancing zydeco through the night and then waltzing to Los Pochos as the sun rose. A favorite would be seeing my dear friend Kathy Ziegler singing her achingly touching songs in a sweat drenched Caberet hall on a Sunday morning. Kathy will be singing us this year...I feel lucky..
