Folkestra goes to Chicago! Day 1
7am meet at the the airport and we were on our way! The flights were delayed but we caught our connection and landed in sunny(!) Chicago. Folkestra travelled in style to the accommodation in a big tour bus US style.
It was a long trek but everyone was in good spirits. The hostel encourages music with guitars on the walls and a baby grand in the communal area, it’s a perfect fit for Folkestra as the first thing they wanted to do was play tunes!
Everyone can’t wait to get our week of music making and playing under-way, starting with an official welcome reception at the wonderful Old Town School of Folk Music tomorrow morning. But first we all need at bit of well earned rest.
