We once discussed Estonia's liberation from Russia via a Song Festival.
This will be slightly different, but good folk songs considering your interest in music.

Thanks, Stan.

I've been tied up today with a 5 hour recording session and I've got a concert tomorrow, so I probably won't get to read it until Monday or so (mandatory post-concert "reception" ;)).
