Re: Klezical Tradition in Springfield, MA April 19

Oops! I sit corrected. Brian (a.k.a. "Roy" to those that don't know him) 
did a great job. And i'm glad at least one other jm-lister was there for 
the concert. I would like to have met you there; I have admired your 
contributions to the list (most especially the "Swan Lake Tsimbl Massacre" 
from KlezKamp!).
