Until Next Year!

Fray Day 8 Fredericksburg was a lot of fun. I hope all those who attended enjoyed the night. We managed to break every one of Derek's rules and nearly all of my addendums, but I think the experience was the better for it.

I decided ahead of time that I wasn't going to record the event in any way -- not video, audio, or stills. I think it distracts from the experience of being there and causes one to assume a mental distance. I was happy to see that no one else had brought cameras. Those of you who weren't there will just have to show up next year!

I have already found a venue for Fray Day 9 Fredericksburg which features a stage, a sound system, and softer lighting. Someone else might need to handle the promotion, though. See you next year!

To get to Fray Day 8 Fredericksburg, to be held in Combs Hall room 111 on the campus of the University of Mary Washington:

* Take I95 to exit #130A.
- Pass under US-1 overpass.
* Turn L onto VA-3 BUS.
* Turn L onto College Ave.
* Turn R through big stone gates.
* Combs Hall is on the R, the right-most building of the three arranged around the green.

There is some small amount of parking on campus once you pass through the stone gates. You may have to park along College Ave. or one of the side-streets immediately off of it.

Venue Finalized!

Featured Performer: Libby Wiebel

Our next featured performer is Libby Wiebel! While a mild mannered computer programmer by day, at night Libby dons many superhero hats, among them that of "a contemporary, folk singer-songwriter" of "melodies that are infused with piano and guitar accompaniment". On her website, Libby speaks of performing in terms of storytelling, and so seems particularly suited to Fray Day!

Several samples of Libby's music can be found here.

Those wishing to purchase her album, "The Wait-a-While Estates", may do so here or from iTunes.
