Twin Oaks just hosted the first (annual) Oakstock music festival! It was a big hit, with over 11 hours of music. There were giant vats of chili, plenty of audience, giant bonfire, perfectly timed rain and tons of great music. For a few people, it was the first time on stage.
Born and raised in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (that beautiful chunk of land bordering lake superior that's connected to the mitten via the Mackinaw Bridge), i escaped to the east coast as early as possible. After 6 years of uppity schooling, i spent a year in New York City and a year travelling the States before settling down at Twin Oaks Community, an intentional, income sharing community of 90 people on 450 acres in central virginia. at the same time i joined a nascent klezmer band, the vulgar bulgars and spent the next 3 living the bucolic life of a farming klezmorim.
