Yes. Tortilla factory open mike (not sure if this counts as social--they certainly weren't anti-social).

Do you play or are you learning a musical instrument? If so, which?

I'm a banjo kickin' girl, baby mine.

Who's your #1 favorite folk or folk-rock performer? Or, who are some of your favorites?

I am a total Carthoholic. (Martin, not Eliza, though she's great too). Jody Stecher, Richard Thompson, Dolores Keane, Susan Mckeown

What are some of your favorite folk or folk-rock songs?

katy cruel, banks of the bann, Brigg Fair, Fido the Rabid Dog

Tell us anything else about yourself you'd care to tell. Answering all these questions is optional, but we're interested.
