Submitted by Sabrina Frazier–The Edge of the World Music Festival is now in full swing once again. This year we have a new Festival Director, Sabrina Frazier, and a new Artistic Director, Roeland Denooij, both fresh with ideas and energy to bring to the festival production. The festival will be held on the second weekend of August, 7, 8 and 9, once again at the Tlell Fall Fair Grounds, so cross your fingers for sun and shine. This years theme is Dancing on the Edge, get your dancing shoes polished and ready to wear out. We’d like to invite anyone interested in participating in putting on the festival: with good ideas; hard work; performance pieces or any kind contribution, please contact Sabrina, 557-4339. Also, a call to island musicians to get your demos to us on time, so start working on them now! Call Roeland for info 557-4242, or contact any coordinator via the www.edgefestival.com website. Finally we, the people who put this festival on every year, would like to thank you, the music lovers who come every year, for all your support and would like to remind you it is never too late to become involved. Watch for regular updates on the progress being made this year.
