Congratulations to Mark Richardson, the 2015 winner of the guitar raffle! And many thanks to the Upper Bout for donating a beautiful Takamine guitar for our raffle fundraiser, their second year of supporting the festival in this way.
Mark, of Bloomington, Indiana, is a contra dance caller and longtime pal to the Urbana Country Dancers. The Upper Bout offers a human connection and a personalized guitar-buying-and-fitting experience.
Many thanks to everyone who participated in the raffle this year, and to Jose Agusti and Lisa Burgoon for organizing it!
