The festival was great for kids, even though there weren't many there. Here is Sora making a shaker that she played at one of the kid-focused sessions. We were the only family in the audience, so the musician (singing with his twin 13 year old daughters) kept trying to solicit song input from Sora, who of course was having none of it. She did finally sing along to a few songs though.
Sora loved to dance as well and entertained the crowds with her crazy moves. It's always a tricky line for me as to what is adorable and what is obnoxious (to others), so luckily after Sora started dancing, the lead singer mentioned that she was having fun and that he loved to play guitar because he loved to see his daughter dancing which meant it was adorable and not too obnoxious.
It was also inspiring for me to see such great guitar players! I started learning to play during Screen Free Week in May, but haven't done much lately. I have a new resolve to learn more and am excited! Maybe there will be a McPherson Family Band at next year's Folk Festival.
