I just found out about the Living Traditions Festival last week. A celebration of Salt Lake’s folk and ethnic arts.
Who knew? not I. This was their 25th anniversary of the festival, and I went to check out the music of the Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars ( you should check them out).
This festival, and seeing this band that has overcome so much in their home country, and knowing that in a few weeks I will be going on my own humanitarian effort in Kenya, was just what I needed to get me mentally ready.
The whole festival was an amazingly great time. I have already made plans to check out at least two other acts tomorrow. The weather may play a factor, but we’ll see.
