How WFPA SongFarmers felt about last year’s Gathering:

“Kudos and our deepest gratitude to each and all who were a part of the success of the 2016 Gathering. Our front porch here at SongFarmers of the Suwannee River Valley of Florida has just grown considerably larger and better.” Linda and Skip Johns, Florida

“I learned so many things and can say I’m a better musician than when I came here. We are SongFarmers, sowing seeds of music and instilling the roots that our forefathers planted so long ago to the younger generation.” WFPA Member Daniel Vann

“We are anxiously looking forward to meeting again with all the Song Farmers next year at Shaker Village. I am still flying high! Thank you for making all this come about.” Dave & Carol Rowgo, Kalamazoo Folklife Society, Kalamazoo, MI
