Meadowgrass, which starts this evening, isn’t the only reason to go to La Foret as you will see in this video tour of the campus with Abby Sienkiewicz.

Speaking of Meadowgrass, congratulations to Michael Comora who won the two weekend passes to Meadowgrass by leaving this fantastic little brush-with-fame story on our new Phonebooth Confessional Story Hotline. You can listen to it HERE:

One Response to A Pre-Meadowgrass Tour of La Foret & More

  1. Lenore Fleck says:

    Wow! We attended Meadowgrass on Saturday. It was wonderful, but the crowd was disappointingly light. I haven’t heard music like this before at a local venue. I hope that Meadowgrass grows in popularity like the great Indie Film Festival.

    Meadowgrass or Territory Days? I know what my choice is for next Memorial Day 🙂
