TownWelcome to our town! Keep Fayetteville Funky!
"You ladies organized quite a production! Loved Wahru!"
"Just wanted to let you all know how much we enjoyed the Festival, and we will definitely be back next year. Keep up the awesome music, and let us know when you are in or near Texas in the coming year. We don't want to wait to see you again. Without a doubt we both had the time of our lives."
"Holly Near changed my life in 1974; I heard her in concert in D.C., when I was working for the federal govenment. I used to sit in front of my fireplace and listen to her songs about revolution, hers and Jimmy Cliff's. She inspired me to start listening to Democracynow! and to join a Marxist/Leninist study group, and a consciousness-raising group made up of all lesbians except for me. And eventually to give all that up, and hit the road, questioning everything. It was SO good to hear her again, and sure enough, she's still committed to social (and environmental, et al) justice. And Wahru was just fantastic, the real thing, such an honor to have her here. You are wonderful, thanks so much!"
"Your concert was Fantastic at the Festival. And so was everybody. In fact you were Amazonazing. Thank you for everything you do."
Thank you ALL for coming to the 2nd Annual Amazon Music Festival! What a grand time we all had! There were many local and regional people from our town, the Ozarks at large, Kansas City, St. Louis; and as far away as Memphis, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Houston, Pennsylvania, and Jersey City!
