Hello yourself! You know about the Diana Jones/Steve Ono concert on Saturday in the Wolk Garden? The Arts & Leisure magazine of the New York Times of Sunday, May 31 has a feature article about Diana Jones - see this link.
She'll be staying with us and will be here for the full party. Come on out and meet a Nashville persona.

DIANA JONES singer/songwriter
2006 Kerville folk winner in concert
Steve Ono opening
Saturday June 6, 7:00 pm $15--Goes to the musicians

"Her songs are as threadbare and timeless as a Carter Family classic, yet as personal and carefully crafted as a John Prine or Guy Clark tune." -- Nashville Scene
"One of the most exciting singer-songwriters to emerge in recent years"-- Sing Out!
Steve Ono, local hero, also performs.

Come early to party & potluck, say “aloha oe” to retiring FFS prez, Anne Jenny.
Stay late and jam with local musicians.
Bring chair or blanket, food & drink to share.

Hey! Nice. FFS is also on myspace and on Facebook. Look at the photos on our myspace--lots of them-- and maybe you can transfer some of them.
