the ig performance at the rocky mountain folks festival was one of the best
i've seen yet.  and the sound was fantastic.  the audience was listening....
didn't keep a setlist, both amy and emily looked wonderful (emily is
definitely thinning down - looking good), the crowd stayed in their lawn
chairs and the girls couldn't thank the audience enough for just listening.
it was great.  no screaming, signs, or the usual standing show- just music
fans that gave them the respect they totally deserved.  i've never heard them
this beautiful.  it was truly a dream show.   moving it up the list to one of
the top five shows i think i've ever seen and heard.   it would be nice if
they played more shows that created such a quiet setting.  emily's guitar
prowess was spectacular ( and no i'm not a gusher).  amy messed up on her
harmonica and apologized about two songs later; said something like,  "it's
always sound  good when i play it at home alone; but then aren't most things
you do alone better.." both in good humor and glad to be in colorado in the
light.  on one of amy's new songs, about a friend that passed away from
ovarian cancer, oh - called, "let me go easy" (i think), she ran up the
octaves into emily range in several parts of the song.   her voice sounds
really solid and warm.  emily's sounded more pure than usual - her notes were
crystal clear and she hit all of them perfectly.  the harmonies were beyond
lennon/mccartney or simon and garfunkel. (yes i know we all know that :-) )
i must have done something special to be at the right place right time last
night. (must have subconsciously channeled cheryl wheeler there just now -
whoops)
it was one of those shows that are like life moments you feel honored to have
been a part of.  the  ig audience sang their parts wonderfully in tune.
there were quite a few people who hadn't seen/heard them before and were
completely blown away by their music and talent.  couldn't stop talking about
their harmonizing.
after their last song but the lyon's crowd just stood, (big effort getting out
of those low back beach chairs you sit in all day), and clapped until they
finally came back out to sing an encore.  haven't seen them do that in a
while.  it was kind of funny; when they came back out; they both headed toward
the guitars - but sulli had already taken them away. <g>  so we were blown
away with finlandia as an encore.  awesome experience.

divinely inspired, devilishly run!
