The Waiting List!

As promised, here is the full listing of the Waiting List. We will operate 2 separate lists - when a local is unable to perform, we will put in a local - when a non-local drops, we will enlist a non-local.

This is bittersweet. We were thrilled with the response, but sorry to have to waitlist so many shows. We will endeavor to make the 2010 festival a huge success, and hopefully will be able to accomodate more groups for 2011.

I also note that we will be trying to involve as many of these folks as we can, by workshops, summer programming...we'll see what we can do. Let's keep the conversation going!
